I could configure the network, it automatically found the correct SSID
and channel. The "TX rate (actual speed)" in wiconfig dropped and
dropped until it was at "1"; I couldn't ping the access point:

ping: sendto: Host is down

FWIW, Linux had the same issue with the driver RALink produced and the open source variant of that. It wasn't until they re-wrote the whole driver against the new wireless stack that it actually worked with any great reliability.
