[Edit] your original post and add [SOLVED] once your question is resolved.

“The people are my God” stressing the factor determining man’s destiny lies within man not in anything outside man, and thereby defining man as the dominator and remoulder of the world.

Step by step guide here.

The picture is not the same as your adapter, but if you take a look at step 3, you'll see that the driver includes your device (RT3592) as well.
And, as a bonus, among the comments you'll find 'tomslee' saying:

1) Download the driver (RT3062PCI/mPCI/CB/PCIe(RT3060/RT3062/RT3562/RT3592) from here
2) Right-click the archive file (DPO_RT3562_3592_3062_LinuxSTA_V2.4.1.1_20101217.tgz9), and select "Extract Here"
3) It will be extracted into a folder called "DPO_RT3562_3592_3062_LinuxSTA_V2.4.1.1_20101217". Now, Right-click this folder and select "Open in Terminal".
4) Now in Terminal, type in the following commands one by one, followed by the "Enter" key:

Code: Select all

sudo su
make
make install
exit
echo "blacklist rt2800pci" | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
exit

5) Reboot

Then the driver might not be properly installed, please make sure that it's loaded with inxi -N or sudo mintWifi (no need to type the full /usr/lib/... path).

Also, please run rfkill list to make sure your wifi is not blocked somehow.

I think you'll have to use the laptop's wifi on/off button or switch to turn on the wireless. The switch is often above the keyboard, or at the front of the laptop.
If it does not work, you can run:

Code: Select all

sudo rfkill unblock all


On HP laptops, you can also boot Windows and enable wifi with HP Wireless Assistant if Linux fails to do so.
