I'm new here and new to Linux so would be grateful for any assistance. I have exactly the same problem as here: Ralink RT3290 wifi not working which doesn't seem like it was solved unfortunately. Is anyone able to offer any advice?
I bought an second hand mini Acer desktop off ebay and have reformatted it using Windows 10 but always wanted to try Linux so have dual booted it with Zorin. Upon launching it works fine and I can use the internet, I have downloaded an application so I am not imagining that it works (lol) but then after a few minutes it stops working and won't work until I reboot or disable/enable the wifi adapter.
It works fine on the Windows partition so I don't believe it to be the hardware or the network and I have other devices using the wifi at the same time, including this laptop which is right next to the Zorin PC so has the same signal strength etc.
