[driverloader] can't get wpa_supplicant to authenticate TKIP

For the WRT54GS I found I needed eapol_version=1 and ap_scan=1 in 
wpa_sup-plicant.conf and needed to have SSID broadcast enabled on the wrt54gs.

This is the wpa_supplicant.conf I used -

I've successfully loaded the linksys drivers with driverloader, and when I turn off authentication in the AP I connect fine (using SSID broadcast both on and off).  I build wpa_supplicant with the default .config.  My wpa_supplicant.conf contains:
