Angry usb 802.11g adaptor on ubuntu breezy ppc

I just bought an asus wl-167g wireless adaptor (uses rt2570 chipset) for my 12" ibook running ubuntu breezy badger and I can't make it work. I origonaly thought it used the rt2500 chipset, but it was in fact the rt2500usb which is different, and aparently the rt2570 is the correct module to use. In any case, it dosnt' work, heres the situation:

Bus 004 Device 015: ID 0b05:1706 ASUSTek Computer, Inc.
Bus 004 Device 011: ID 062a:0001 Creative Labs Notebook Optical Mouse
Bus 004 Device 007: ID 0781:5151 SanDisk Corp.
Bus 004 Device 002: ID 04b4:6560 Cypress Semiconductor Corp. CY7C65640 USB-2.0 "TetraHub"
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 0000:0000

dmesg output after unpluging and repluging the device:
