    RT3090 fails to connect

    I have an RT3090 that I'm trying to get to work but having a really difficult time. I've researched and found a lot of topic regarding this device but could not find the solution.

    When I execute iwlist wlan1 scan on terminal, for the most part, I would say 98% of the time, it will give me No scan result. The other two percent , it will give me a result with my router info. The only thing I notice that is suspicious is the quality of he signal. Considering I am only 5 feet away from the router, I am getting a 21/70 quality.

    Other than that, the device is detected with the right driver installed.

    sudo lshw -C network gives me:
    description: Wireless interface

    Any suggestions will be great. Any other info you need, just let me know. Thanks in advance

    This is one of the cards that scare me because of the hopeless dead ends they sometimes lead me to. But since no one else picked it up, I think it is safe to post as a BUMP to the thread, as well as ask for more information. If still no one else with better experience with it picked it up, I may try my luck.
