I bought a new PC with the AsRock Z77 Extreme 4m motherboard, since this has no WLAN, I extracted the WLAN card from my old PC, a Ralink RT 2571 WF, an connected it to the new board. I downloaded the driver from http://www.ralinktech.com/en/04_support/support.php?sn=500 (the RT257x USB one) and installed it. In the device manager, an unknown device shows up, but if I tell it to search its driver, it does not find it (searching in the whole C partition).

The Ralink Diagnostic Test says that the WLAN Card is disabled.

I'm using Windows 7 64bit professional. Can anyone suggest me a solution to get my WLAN running?

Ralink RT2571 is NOT compatible with Win 7! – user350866 Jul 28 '14 at 17:48

Perhaps instead of letting windows search for the driver, tell it exactly where the driver is by using the "Have Disk" method.

Example:

Ok, now it finds the driver RT73 USB Wireless LAN Card, but it cannot start it (Error 10). – tuelsch Oct 21 '12 at 17:51
