Picked up a cheap HP laptop on Black Friday and it works pretty good except for the Ralink WiFi adapter (RT5390). I can never get a signal, at least not for long. It doesn't matter where I'm at, its the same everywhere. It goes from a good signal, down to little to no signal to the point where I'll have to sign back in to a hotel network if I'm traveling. I've tested two laptops side by side so I know its not the network. I've also updated my drivers and that did nothing. Thanks in advance.

What driver version is currently installed on your wireless adapter and have you seen this Latest version? Have you tried changing wireless signal frequency on your router?
