wpa_supplicant works with Linuxant wrapper, but unfortunately, I'm not
aware of an open source NDIS wrapper that would support such
configuration. Maybe some day..

I'm using Host AP driver with D-Link DWL-650 Rev. P1 in client mode with
wpa_supplicant and xsupplicant. I have only used WPA and have not tested
xsupplicant alone (i.e., IEEE 802.1X), but I see no reason why it
wouldn't work.
