    I have a similar question to the OP. I am also having problems with this wifi adapter.
    At first the error code was Ralink RT 5390R 802.11bgn Wi-Fi adapter is experiencing driver - or hardware- related problems. So I spent some time online and tried a few recommendations.
    I reset TCP/IP settings and reset winsock catalogue and downloaded a new driver.

    My new issue is now it doesn't even show up as a network adapter option and is hidden. When I look it up in device manager it shows this new code
    Currently, this hardware device is not connected to the computer. (Code 45)

    To fix this problem, reconnect this hardware device to the computer.

    I don't know how to do this as it is internal. What options do you suggest I try. Thanks for any ideas that I could try next.

    There seems to be an Intel wireless card in Device Manager and you said the Ralink wireless card is internal so did it replace the Intel card ?
