This is another next-generation AC-mode driver for devices like the Linksys AE6000. The mt7610u driver is not present in any current mainstream kernel. However, there is a patched vendor driver that compiles in recent platforms like Tahrpup k3.14.20.

For other Puppies, this driver is a disaster. Avoid it.

Hi rcrsn51...

I do have an adapter that has either the 7601 or the 7610 chip, I can't remember which, I would need to run Tahr to hopefully find out. If I have the correct chipset and your driver can be installed and run live (doesn't require a frugal or full install of Tahr,) I wouldn't mind running some tests for you. Smile

I've got some things to do today, I'll let you know which chip I have either tonight or tomorrow at some point, Lord willing. Wink

Thanks for creating this driver for folks...

Regards...

Plug in the adapter and run the command: lsusb.

Identify the vendor:product ID codes.

Hi...

it looks like I have the 7601...

Code:
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 148f:7601 Ralink Technology Corp.


So I'm pretty sure your driver won't work. If you want to compile the 7601 driver, if you haven't already done so already, I would be happy to test that one for you. Wink

Regards...

The mt7601u driver has already been discussed elsewhere in the forum.

Is there any driver for this wifi module?

I have recently purchased a dongle that does nothing, and aparently has this chip in it.

I recently looked at some new github projects for this driver. In my tests, they continue to be garbage.

The device is Windows-only.

That sucks. I was looking at two different devices in the shop. One had a nice penguin on the back, was half the price but half the speed. So I went for the faster one assuming Linux supported pretty much everything. Idiot.

If you want an AC-mode adapter, the one that works for me is the Realtek 8812au driver, like the Edimax EW-7811UTC.

Actually just now, I have gotten it to work.

Following this process:

Code:
git clone https://github.com/jurobystricky/Netgear-A6210.git


Code:
cd Netgear-A6210



Code:
make



Code:
make install


This has worked on Tahr with 3.14.56 PAE kernel. The wifi usb dongle I have is the Asus USB-AC55. I had trouble getting it to work earlier because I (idiot) didn't have the kernel sources loaded..

I will see how long it works for, but am posting from it now Smile

That's good news, but this appears to be a different driver than the mt7610u.
