    Then the only thing I can think of since win8 is Out and so is a cheap Dongle , is to try and downgrade since you appear to have tried all the drivers available.

    Does a friend have a Dongle to try?

    I found an old wireless-G dongle, had to track down the drivers for it. It works, but I need to get this damn chip working.

    Hi, I have a notbooke g7 and had quite the same problem: my Ralink board disappear after a while or when coming back of sleep or simplel alleatory. Well the solution the worked out for me was to keep the last version 5.057 and install over the old 5.045 from here too, since that no more problem even though the driver version is the 057 but evrythin looks like ok, why???? say that I had corruption???? everthing new and fresh from original win 8 and no problems, well before got fixed I even need to "dong" the place of the ralink board, looking like it was "failing".....

    sp71571 is the one I've tried repeatedly, even right after a fresh install of Win10. No go. Don't know what the issue is with this particular chip.
