The latest driver package is necessary for every owner of Ralink networking hardware since the basic networking drivers contained in the regular Windows installation are not sufficient for taking full advantage of all networking capabilities that you may require.
While Windows may recognize basic features for wireless communication, many other networking components will remain inaccessible. Additionally, generic Windows drivers may become unsuitable, or in some cases, actively cause harm to your system. This includes instability, networking data corruption, or in some extreme cases, corruption of your local data in moments when the system instability leads to the sudden OS crash.
Installation and Use
While many other driver packages are distributed in large archives that hold combability support for many generations of hardware and multiple OS versions, Ralink drivers are specialized for a single networking controller and just a few OS versions. Because of this, Ralink 802.11n USB Wireless Driver comes at just around 200kb in size and it does not even feature an installer. To successfully install it on your Windows OS, you will need to perform a manual installation. Head on to Device Manager app, locate networking hardware device you wish to update, and pick the option for manual location of the driver. Browse to its location on your local storage and load it. The OS will incorporate it into your system files, and immediately try to initialize the chosen piece of hardware.
Official support covers Windows XP to Windows 7 although some users have reported that this driver also served them well when they installed it on newer Windows 10. We recommend you to take caution if installing this driver on unsupported Windows version, and to create a Restore Point in case some driver incompatibility causes your system to lose stability. Windows 7 driver can also be used on Vista. Every other driver version comes standalone, made for the specific Windows version.
After the successful installation of Ralink 802.11n USB Wireless Driver, we recommend you restart your OS before trying to access networking features of your USB Wireless networking hardware.
