Hi there!
This is in short my situation
1) The interface is created correctly and brigs up correctly (wlan0)
2) The firmware is loaded ok
3) The output of lsmod says that the rt73 modules is not used (module=rt73 used=0)
4) No lights from the usb dongle
5) if I do iwconfig (after configuring the interface with encryption,and a lot of things...) I get Link quality=0 and Encryption key=off, but signal=-121 and noise=-143 and bitrate=54
6) I cannot ping the dongle from the Access Point (it won't show as associated in the status of the AP...)
7) I've tryed also without encryption without any results

[b106im5gp]...now the funny thing that makes me imagine that the driver is ok...[/b106im5gp][/size106im5gp]

If I do "iwlist wlan0 scanning" the "act" led blinks and I can get the list of my near AP's

This is the script I've always used and has always worked well on another machine with Fedora

ifconfig wlan0 up
ifconfig wlan0 netmask
iwconfig wlan0 essid mysecretssid
iwconfig wlan0 ap 001A70xxxxxx
iwpriv wlan0 set AuthMode=WPA2PSK
iwpriv wlan0 set WPAPSK=mysecretkey
iwpriv wlan0 set EncrypType=TKIP
iwconfig wlan0 essid mysecretssid
route del default gw eth0
route add default gw wlan0
echo nameserver > /etc/resolv.conf
