Ralink RT3290 802.11bgn driver for windows 8.1

pavillion g6
Windows 8.1

Hi there.... been trying to do this on my own for almost a month now. My HP laptop won't connect wirelessly when I'm 5 feet away from my modem router. I found out that my Ralink RT3290 802.11bgn has compatibility issues with Windows 8.1 so I tried to download the driver for this. I'm still having issues updating it. I now have uninstalled the driver. how can i install it back using the compatible driver? please help im getting so frustrated and almost ready to have my laptop returned! thanks in advance.

i haven't done anything on the machine. i use to connect it using a wired connection but since i need my laptop to be portable i need to connect it wirelessly only to find out that it can't connect for more than 5 feet away from the mode router.

product: J8C26PA#UUF

model: 14-ro25TX

We're consumers just like you, trying to help others here in this forum.

Try downloading, saving & installing latest Intel chipset driver first:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareDownloadIndex?softwareitem=ob-140540-1&cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en...

Restart system.


Uninstall currently installed WLAN & Bluetooth drivers from Device Manager - Control Panel.

Then - Again install the Wireless LAN driver from above link, restart system after completing installation. Then, install Bluetooth driver given in above link, restart system after installation. Check.

If that don't work, uninstall WLAN & Bluetooth again from Device Manager,

Try Ralink(Mediatek) driver directly from manufacturer's site:
http://www.mediatek.com/en/downloads/pciert2790rt309xrt35x2rt539xrt3290mt7630/

Restart system

Install Bluetooth driver given by banhien again. Restart system

Check.

That's all I have in my mind.


Kind regards
