    It would help to know the make and model of your computer. In the mean time, see this link:

    If you can't find the model of your wifi card in your PC's manual, you can always check it in windows.
    Control Panel > Device Manager > Network Adapters > Select the wifi card > Right-click properties > Details > Hardware Ids
    This should give you a string identifying the model's vendor, number, etc...
    DEV_xxxx : xxx should be the model number
    Go to Downloads - MediaTek (official support page of Ralink for drivers)
    Locate your driver for the corresponding number and voila.
