If you will provide some more information..

Which version of ndiswrapper are you using? With which NDIS driver and

And what happened after this? I saw similar issues with a scan for
specific SSID (scan_ssid=1), but broadcast SSID scan worked fine. Please

that is not likely to be deployed anywhere yet.
