With most mail clients, you can hit "reply all" instead of "reply", and
it'll copy the list for you.  That's what I do in Thunderbird at least.
I've never used gmail (I know, I must be one of only about 5 people), so
I don't know exactly how you'd do it there.

Must have misunderstood then, or something.

Sounds like both the card and its firmware support TKIP then.  And
wpa_supplicant supports WPA in EAP-TLS mode.  So it should work fine.

That's probably a problem with driver you're using then.

Yes; you could perhaps look for an updated driver from whoever made your
card.  WPA is pretty ancient by now -- if your card doesn't have drivers
that support it, I'll be surprised.

As Jouni said, Windows/NDIS should work with ap_scan=2, so I'm not sure
what's going on with that.

Not sure where this comes from, but it doesn't look like the full
output.  Perhaps it's related to another message you got somewhere

This should mean that your card is connected and working just fine.  At
this point you should be able to get a DHCP lease (or statically assign
an address), and you should be able to pass traffic.
