[HELP]Ralink RT5370 USB Wi-Fi adapter stopped working for no reason.

Recommended Posts

Hello, thanks for reading.

My USB Wi-Fi adapter (Ralink RT5370) has worked fine since I installed 10.9 (Now updated to 10.9.5)... Last night I left my pc on, and this morning I woke up to having no internet? I don't know what it wrong with it. I disconnected and connected and it turn on for like 5 seconds, no even allowed a website to load, and when is not working I press the rescan button (to scan for routers) and it won't find any.

I tried rebooting the computer (which makes it work for no more than 10 seconds)... Reinstalling drivers and everything... Anyone might know what's wrong with it?

(There's a picture).

Thanks, once again.

EDIT: After doing a reinstall once again, it now stays kind of on, but I still have no internet.


EDIT 2: The problem appears to be in the adapter since I had the same issue using Windows OS. It's what I should have done in the first place.

If it is on windows as well, buy a new adapter.
