Long standing bug report

Three is a Launch Pad bug report on this WiFi card since 2013:

I suggest you subscribe to the bug report because the more people that do the quicker the bug gets solved. Also subscribe to the email chain for status updates.

There are too many fixes listed in Ask Ubuntu to pick a single one that will work for you. Here are the various questions you can check on the RT3290 though:

How to get WiFi Information

There is a diagnostics script you can run to analyze all things WiFi:

wget -N -t 5 -T 10 https://github.com/UbuntuForums/wireless-info/raw/master/wireless-info
chmod +x wireless-info
./wireless-info

It will create the file wireless-info.txt at which point you will need to use:

Now the bottom of your question will look something like this:

########## wireless info START ##########
