For anyone trying this same usb dongle (with ver. 4000), try removing any other usb connections (for e.g., a printer that's connected via usb). I did before boot up and I could scan for networks. This is even using Debian Testing which uses a similar version of kernel. (2.6.24).

I was really surprised, to tell you the truth. I know this is not the best solution and doesn't explain much but it's FYI. I hope this helps someone.

P.S. There is another post here somewhere that reports the same 'solution.' Something about a usb hub. I wonder if there is some sort of usb conflict that is preventing the (zydas/zd1211-based) adapter starting up.
