Ubuntu – Ralink RT3290 wifi drops every 5 minutes


I have HP Pavilion G6-2201ax laptop. After a year or so I could install a good driver for my wireless device. Help with the RT3290 Wireless adapter. Now connection is good and strong. But new problem is that wifi drops every 5 minutes. I have to reconnect it everytime. Please help. I have disabled 802.11n also tried wicd network manager. Nothing helps.
