Have you enabled SSID hiding ("disable broadcast SSID")?

Please note that EAP-PSK is not WPA-PSK and you most likely do not need
EAP-PSK (CONFIG_EAP_PSK). WPA-PSK is enabled automatically without any
configuration parameter in .config.

Please note that ndiswrapper does not support scan_ssid=1. If you are
using hidden SSID, please try ap_scan=2 mode and remove this
scan_ssid=1. For ap_scan=2, you will need to explicitly configure the
correct mode, i.e., set pairwise to match with the setup that the AP is
using (either CCMP or TKIP, not both) and set proto to WPA or WPA2.
