After going around all the forums looking for answers and help, having tested all I read on my circa-2012 Compaq CQ58 (with no success), I'm here to ask you help.
For days I installed versions and versions of Ubuntu and Lubuntu trying to make WiFi work well, but it doesn't. Currently I have installed Lubuntu 18.04 LTS (system requirements) and it doesn't work here either.
I will briefly explain the problem: when I turn on my PC the WiFi connects and for a minute the pages loads and everything goes very quickly but after a minute (or even less) despite the connection there is and despite I have Internet on my phone; on the computer it does not work anymore. The pages do not load and the WiFi tends to disconnect and change networks without being able to establish a connection, no longer allowing me to browse.
I thought it was a drivers problem and then I looked for the drivers for my WiFi module (Ralink RT5390R 802.11bgn PCIe), but I did not found them loadable for Linux… I found only for Windows and with all the codes that I found I had no results, often i've gotPL code errors and other problems.
Can you help me? I don't know what to do. If you need details let me know …
i'm adding some outputs:

I've tried to set a static ip address but no changes.
