wpa_supplicant would support WPA on both Linux and Windows XP, but it
sounds like the Windows driver you are using does not support WPA.

ap_scan=2 should work fine with Windows NDIS drivers. I haven't seen any
NDIS driver that would not work with it.. Did you configure all
parameters that ap_scan comments in wpa_supplicant.conf mention? Please
send your configuration file if you cannot get this working.

I'm not aware of any card that works _perfectly_ ;-). I've used
Prism2/2.5/3-based PC Cards successfully with both Windows and Linux.
