Not able to get to work usb wireless card RT2870/RT3070 in Debian squeeze


Hi everybody!
I've the following issue. I bought a usb wireless adapter, which apears like this when I use "lsusb":
Code:
root@chikidu:~# lsusb
Bus 008 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 007 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 006 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 005 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 003 Device 002: ID 148f:3070 Ralink Technology, Corp. RT2870/RT3070 Wireless Adapter
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 04f2:b128 Chicony Electronics Co., Ltd 
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
As you can see is in "Bus 003 Device". I downloaded and installed the firmware-ralink 0.28+squeeze1 using synaptic. The firmware is in /lib/firmware. When I mount the usb wireless card on monitore mode with airmon-ng everything seems to be working fine:
Code:
root@chikidu:~# airmon-ng start wlan1


Found 6 processes that could cause trouble.
If airodump-ng, aireplay-ng or airtun-ng stops working after
a short period of time, you may want to kill (some of) them!
-e 
PID     Name
1345    NetworkManager
1395    wpa_supplicant
1474    avahi-daemon
1475    avahi-daemon
2234    knetworkmanager
5722    dhclient
Process with PID 627 (wlan0/0) is running on interface wlan0
Process with PID 628 (wlan0/1) is running on interface wlan0


Interface       Chipset         Driver

wlan0           RTL8187         r8187
wlan1           Unknown         rt2800usb - [phy1]
                                (monitor mode enabled on mon0)
But the problem comes when I start scaning with airodump-ng, it doesn't find any networks at all. Also I can't conect using the usb wireless adapter, just plugging in the ethernet wire to my laptop.
I'm using Debian Squeeze 2.6.32-5-amd64.

I'd really apreciate some help, I've google it but found no answer.
I'm pretty sure that it's quite simple to solve, but I'm still lerning how to use Linux.

Thanks!
