Hmm, I think I forgot to add one little thing in my comment.
The scanning operation is demanded in the rt2x00 README, so the driver
doesn't start the scanning automatically and just awaits the user commands.
The user is also free to change the channel to make the configuration active.
But a scanning command will also display if it has at least found some AP,
so without scanning results attempting to scan will very likely fail. ;)
