I'm new in Linux and ElementaryOS world, so I'm a little noob

I have a HP 250 G3, and I installed ElementaryOS in dual boot with WIndows 10.

The problem regards WiFi connection: even if "Wireless" is set on active (in the menu on the top right), it doesn't find any access point; furthermode if I go on settings --> network and select Wireless, it results as "Wireless is deactivated". With the LAN connection everything works fine.

I think it may be a problem with network driver. The Network Board is a "Ralink corp. RT3290 Wireless 802.11n 1T/1R PCIe"

Anyone knows how can I fix it? Thanks!

Check if it's blocked on the software level with rfkill.
