   RT3090 Wifi (module rt2800pci) has bad reception on Ubuntu 14.04

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I've upgraded from 12.04 (actually Mint 13) to 14.04 (actually Mint
  17) (64bit), and my Wifi reception with my Ralink RT3090 is now very
  bad. I only get good connectivity if I'm in the same room as my wifi
  router, whereas previously or in Windows 7 I could connect to the
  router from a significantly larger distance. Also, the nm-applet now
  shows only 2 networks tops (the strongest ones), whereas previously
  I'd get a very long list.

  Since the wifi still works well in Windows 7, this shouldn't be a
  hardware issue.
