Apparently, I have rediscovered the procedure documented in the README
for the rt61pci driver.


"- After the client interface has been brought up, scanning can be
performed to check if the desired AP is being detected. Note that it is
currently mandatory to scan at least once before starting an association

        # $ iwlist wlan0 scan

 - To start an association attempt, the AP address should be set:

        # $ iwconfig wlan0 ap mybssid"

Does this behavior (mandatory scan after ifconfig bring-up) mean that
this hardware can never work out-of-the-box with Ubuntu?
