Could you please give a direct address for the download page of the
Supplicant code you are using? I have only tested non-Microsoft
Supplicants with Win2k.

Works for me, but like I said, with another Win2k Supplicant. Can you
get any debug output from the Supplicant you are using? I would also
like to see debug output from hostapd. In addition, I would recommend
testing this with the latest CVS version of hostapd.
