    hello carlson,

    You could also try the newer 4.20 64-bit kernel from synaptic (see attached pic)
    You might also have to hit reload for it to show up.
    as your “Ralink RT5390R” wifi chip is fairly new chip.
    The newer driver might help.

    The “iwlwifi” commands are only for intel wifi chips
    https://wiki.debian.org/iwlwifi

    here is a github link that shows building the
    module for the ralink 5390 chip

    i will refresh to see if the kernel pops up. i am a newbie to this stuff…..where/how would i get the new driver?

    I would try the newer kernel first otherwise you would have to build the module
    which is tricky if you have never done it before.

    I have a laptop with a 5390 wifi chip I could try later today and let you know
    how it goes and write a detailed description if it works.

    I would suggest to install the 4.20.0-antix1 kernel with the package-installer, not synaptic, package-installer will install the appropriate linux-headers , too.

    thx caprea,
    I totally spaced the headers….I forget that package-installer is there as I
    usually use the terminal with apt and apt-get. I only popped up synaptic to
    show the correct version numbers. I’m letting my other laptop charge while I make
    a install usb stick and read about the driver.

    here’s my results from the 49 default kernel…I think something else is
    going on because my speed is good on the rt2800 module driver. I noticed that your
    post of iwconfig shows a real bad signal level at -33 dbm.
    Are you too far from the router. I’ll try on the 4.19 kernel as that’s what the
    package installer is showing and repost.

    It is definitly worth updating to the 4.19 patched kernel as my
    speed went from 40Mbps to 70Mbps on speedtest.net
    without changing anything else.
    I’ll try the other module later on both kernels and compare the
    findings.

    BTW to update the kernel on the usb you first open the control-centre in the
    menu then go to the system tab and use the package installer option. From there
    choose kernel-antiX_64bit_latest_meltdown-patched. After it finishes
    installing close the package-installer but --don't reboot. Go to the live tab instead
    and choose the remaster-custumize-live option and wait a few minutes for it to
    finish then use the live-usb kernel updater also under live in the control-center
    to update the usb stick. Choose the update vmlinuz option. when you reboot choose the top option
    from grub. It’s up to you whether to save personal or general when the custumize asks…I
    don’t know what you changed…the personal saves the desktop and settings for next boot
    and general don’t.

    my last edit got lost. anyway the newer kernel almost doubled my
    speed from 40-70 without changing anything else.

    maybe have to be closer to the router as well. I noticed that the rt2800
    driver has poor range on mine.

    Some reports talk about changing the channel of the router.

    Philosophers have interpreted the world in many ways; the point is to change it.
