    ndiswrapper - WEP vs WPA - WPA not working

    I've got a Netgear N600 USB wireless adapter that I got working with ndiswrapper. It can connect to WEP networks, but if I try to join a network wiht WPA, it keeps failing(though it takes a minute or so) and re-prompting for the password. I've run a couple diagnostics already. When I try connecting, it's obviously trying WPA2 properly:
    Code:
    root@Battlenizer:/etc/wpa_supplicant# sudo iwlist wlan0 auth
    wlan0     Authentication capabilities :
    		WPA
    		WPA2
    		CIPHER-TKIP
    		CIPHER-CCMP
              Current WPA version :
    		WPA2
              Current Key management :
    		PSK
              Current Pairwise cipher :
    		CCMP
              Current Pairwise cipher :
    		CCMP
              Current Authentication algorithm :
    		open
    And it shows it's capable of this too, so it doesn't appear to be a driver issue. dmesg doens't show anything for the connection attempts unfortunately

    I tried it wihtout ndiswrapper at first, but got nowhere, and every mention I found of using this device says they only got it working through ndiswrapper.

    Try to change the router to b/g mode only.

    It didn't work. I want to be using n though with this device anyways, since it'll be for streaming media, and it's the reason I even got this one in the first place(since it supports n). It is in general mixed mode right now(since I have a laptop that has a G adapter).

    *edit* I also tried kicking it over to the 5GHz band and that had the same symptoms.

    Any other suggestions? I'd prefer not to have to go buy something else to make this work...
