This looks more like a problem with the NDIS driver or ndiswrapper than
wpa_supplicant. ndiswrapper is reporting that the AP did not have WPA IE
in the Beacon frame. wpa_supplicant cannot really do much in such a
case. In other words, posting this to ndiswrapper mailing list with some
more details about the used wireless LAN card and NDIS driver could be
better way to get this resolved.
