Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello Community,

 

I have HP Pavilion 5 NoteBook PC and I had this problem from a while that I receive the internet connection with only two signals and I'm beside the Router but on the other devices the internet works perfectly, What I can do?

 

I have RaLink RT3290 802.11bgn Wi-Fi Adapter Driver

 

I tried to update the driver and watched some solutions but didn't work.

 

Can you tell me what I should do? Should I change WiFi Card or buy USB Wi-Fi adapter that increase the signal?

 

Thank you.

Hi:

 

None of the Ralink wifi cards work well or at all with the last several builds of W10.

 

There is no software/driver fix.  I'm surprised it is even showing up in the device manager.  Usually it completely disappears.

 

I would suggest you replace the card with a better one, or use a USB wifi adapter.

 

Before I can recommend an internal wifi card replacement, I would need to know the full model number or product number of your notebook.

 

Use this guide to find that information...please do not post the serial number.

You may find the link doesn't work right now.  There must be a complete HP website system outage.

You're very welcome.

 

As it turns out, I cannot find any specs on your notebook.

 

Can you please let me know if it has an Intel core processor or an AMD processor?

 

Then I will be able to give you a recommendation for an internal wifi card.
