How do I get the RT5370 working? All that happens is the network manager keeps asking for the password.

iwconfig

wlan0     IEEE 802.11bgn  ESSID:off/any
          Mode:Managed  Access Point: Not-Associated   Tx-Power=20 dBm
          Retry  long limit:7   RTS thr:off   Fragment thr:off
          Encryption key:off
          Power Management:on

it will briefly display this sometimes:

 wlan0     IEEE 802.11bgn  ESSID:"XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX"
           Mode:Managed  Frequency:2.XXX GHz  Access Point: XX:XX:XX:XX:XX
           Bit Rate=6.5 Mb/s   Tx-Power=20 dBm
           Retry  long limit:7   RTS thr:off   Fragment thr:off
           Encryption key:off
           Power Management:on
           Link Quality=70/70  Signal level=-29 dBm
           Rx invalid nwid:0  Rx invalid crypt:0  Rx invalid frag:0
           Tx excessive retries:0  Invalid misc:5   Missed beacon:0

Okay I have 3 wifi dongles. NONE WORK (but the 8188 worked on 32-bit). I really want the RT5370 to work
