HP PAVILION G7 2010 NR

I replaced the wireless adapter for this HP Pavilion G7 notebook and having trouble connecting to the router.  i can not find the drivers to install to see if that might be the problem  the wireless card being replaced is RALINK WLAN RT5390  Any help fixing this problem  can you replace with a universal wireless adapter or do you have to use the same brand (which i can not find)   part number 670691-001  please help  this is driving me crazy

Hi:

 

That card doesn't work with the newer builds of W10. 

 

Here is the W10 driver for it, but I doubt it will solve the problem.

 

5.0.57.0

What I recommend you do is to take a chance on this dual band wifi card with bluetooth...

 

Broadcom BCM943228HMB 802.11abgn 2×2 Wi-Fi Adapter, Broadcom Bluetooth 4.0 Adapter HP part # 730668-001.

 

You should be able to find this card on eBay.  Search by the HP part number, not the model of the wifi card.
