D-Link Wireless Dongle (RT2870) issues, possible kernel bug?

Howdy do.

I have tried to connect to a nearby unencrypted network with my D-Link USB Wireless adapter (Rev. E) on my Fedora 17 32-bit laptop.
This is with the standard rt2{8,x}00* modules. The dongle works fine until I try to connect to the network. It won't connect, and dmesg has the following to report:

ADDRCONF(NETDEV_UP): wlan0: link is not ready
wlan0: direct probe to <BSSID> (Tries three times)
wlan0: authentication with <BSSID> timed out

uname -r


I also installed compat-wireless, same result. I'd say it looks a bit like a kernel bug.
