Windows 7: RALINK RT2870 Wireless Driver Problem

RALINK RT2870 Wireless Driver Problem

Hi all,

I have a Medion Atuyo P7700d PC with a RALINK RT2870 USB WLan.

I can't get it to connect to the internet over wifi. I have tried downloading the driver from the Ralink website - but it seems incredibly slow. I found the same driver elsewhere and downloaded it. However it doesn't appear to work.

I'm trying to run Windows 7 Profession x64.

Does anyone have a solution / working driver for this. Tried searching the net but yet no success.

Thanks Tech Guys and Gals

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1

There's another thread about the same USB wifi device (but branded under another manufacturer) with similar problems connecting over wifi. So far, the only solution has been to remove all security on the wifi network.

This hasn't been tried yet, AFAIK - try installing the drivers in Vista x64 compatibility mode.

Also - what version did you download? Did you download the or drivers?
