I just went thruthrough (hell) similar experience trying to make internal WiFi to work.This should work for a USB dongle too - not tested.

Here is my take on the whole mess. 1. Forget “official tutorials “ and “raspi-config”. ( “cannot communicate with wpa_supplicant “ is a joke ) 2. Make sure wpa_supplicant SERVICE is running. "wpa_cli" will start it, "Network Manager" may do same - not tested. 3. With what WiFi device will your Rpi be communicating ? Router / modem? 4. Use Raspi OS GUI “Network Manager” (sic?() to find “the other end of the communication link” - in my case router / modem. 5. Select the device (name / SSID) and supply password if necessary. 6. Reboot and test.
