I am trying to add an RT5370 dongle (RA-WN110606C) to my Raspi CM3+.

Unfortunately, I'm unable to make it work. I can see the WLAN appear when I execute ifconfig :

wlan0: flags=4099<UP,BROADCAST,MULTICAST>  mtu 1500
        ether 00:12:01:a2:43:84  txqueuelen 1000  (Ethernet)
        RX packets 0  bytes 0 (0.0 B)
        RX errors 0  dropped 0  overruns 0  frame 0
        TX packets 0  bytes 0 (0.0 B)
        TX errors 0  dropped 0 overruns 0  carrier 0  collisions 0

But I cannot connect to an AP neither do a scan. Here is the problem.

dmesg:

I keep having this message and never have the message "IPv6: ADDRCONF(NETDEV_CHANGE): wlan0: link becomes ready"

Do you have any solution that I can try to resolve this problem with this dongle

Here is some new log that I got on a Raspi 3B+. It still doesn't work but it's different...
