I've installed Mint on a HP Pavillion E001SF (touchscreen PC) equiped with a "RALINK Corp RT3290 Wireless 802.11n 1T/1R PCIE". It works fine except a problem on the quality of the Wifi given the fact that this device was previously provided with Windows 8 and worked fine with the Wifi event at 15m, on an other floor in the house.
Now, when I'm 2m far from router, only 73% quality / 6 mb-s; at 5m far it's 50% / 1 mb-s and it cuts the connection at 7m approximately. Generally, when I come back at 2m, it refuses to recognize again the ESSID. I've checked all this metrics with iwconfig. I've tried to restart the network interfaces, "service networking restart" but it has stopped all network interfaces ! When I reboot the PC, it works again but, of course, under the same conditions ...
What can I do to improve the sensitivity ? Could it be a driver issue ?
Many thanks !
