Wifi dongle not working (Recalbox 6.1.1, PC x86_64)

I am desperate! I have been searching for answers to my problem for days but without luck. Therefore I am now writing here as a last resort.
My setup: I have installed Recalbox 6.1.1 pc x86_64 to a micro ssd card connected with usb to my pc. I then have a separate usb for my roms, themes and so on.
Everything works great except for getting the wifi to work. I also have a keyboard and controller connected by usb. I have bought the recommended wifi dongle (Edimax EW-7811Un) but I can't seem to get it to work at all.
When trying to search for available wifis in the recalbox interface nothing is found. I have tried disabling and re-enabling several times. I have also manually put in the login details to the config but that doesn't work at all. Does anyone have an idea on how I can make it work?
Below is the output of ssh "dmesg" which I hope helps. Please note that I am using an Ethernet cable to be able to do this.

@DonGesualdo I'm not run recalbox on raspberry but on PC the same dongle in recalbox on raspberry works. why?
@DonGesualdo please wait a few hours and try again with Recalbox 7.0
Thanks with recalbox7 the installation works but not the connection. when I plug the dongle i have this output in dmesg:

but wifi doesn't works at all...
the secret not contains special chars, it's quite long 19 chars (is that a problem?) and when I open again the password in edit is not crypted how i expect. Where i'm wrong?
@acris I already use it and it's works but for enable wifi i must turn off and turn on after every boot. Any work around for this? thanks
