rt3070sta not controllable with networkmanager


I have an rt3070sta based wifi usb adapter. I've actually got it working, but I have to manually connect it to the correct ap (using ifconfig, iwconfig, and dhcpcd) and cannot use NetworkManager. When starting NetworkManager --no-daemon I get the following output:

NetworkManager: <info> starting...
NetworkManager: <info> modem-manager is now available

(NetworkManager:5268): GLib-CRITICAL **: g_error_free: assertion `error != NULL' failed

NetworkManager: <WARN> default_adapter_cb(): bluez error getting default adapter: The name org.bluez was not provided by any .service files

The only important/unexpected line as far as I can tell is that it couldn't determine the device driver for ra0, my wifi device. It seems odd to me that this device is in a "virtual" device folder, is that part of the problem? I'm at a total loss as to how NetworkManager is expecting to relate the device to its driver.

The distro I'm using is Gentoo, and I configured the kernel myself. I also compiled the wifi driver myself (even had to make some modifications to get it to compile.. nothing major, just update some function names and add a license tag).

I'm not sure what other info would be helpful in solving this problem, I will try to be prompt with any requests for more information.
