The driver, mt7601u, and its firmware are already in xenialpup 7.5 and Upup_bionic 18.05. You should not need to install anything else, according to what I read online here:

Have you tried to do a connection using it?

menu->Setup->Internet Connection Wizard->Wired or wireless LAN->Network Wizard

Network Wizard wireless connection steps.

1. Select Network Wizard
2. Select wlan0 (your network card may have a different description)
3. Select Wireless in the Configure wireless network box.
4. Select Scan and your ESSID should come up.
5. Select your ESSID and OK
6. Give a name to your profile. It should already be what you selected in step 5.
7. Encryption. Most people use WPA/TKIP - select it or WPA2.
8. A box will open for you to write the WPA password. It is called a Shared Key. Enter the password.
9. Leave the other boxes as they are. Rarely do these need adjustment.
9. Select Save
10. Select Use This Profile
11. A box will appear showing Puppy trying to connect
12. A box will come up “REPORT ON TEST 0f wlan0CONNECTION”
13. Select Auto DHCP in the Configure interface box and it will go through a handshake routine. and declare itself successful
14. Select done

If something does not work.
What step?
You do what?
You see what?


Also make sure your system's time zone setting is correct - if not, many website's certificates then act as if they are expired, and the webpage won't display.

I always pick Frisbee for the wireless Wizard.

Try that.

I am suggesting the Network Wizard, because if a step does not work, that is a big clue as to what is wrong.
It almost tells you what the problem is.

No biggie mate.
It's just that I had a recent Pup that I unwittingly tried your way.
It absolutely refused to connect.

So I used Frisbee, just worked.

I think rcrsn51 has a wireless pet???
printers and usb booting he always posts about on Murga.

Complete respect for all the efforts you both bring here.

Cheers....Chris.

I found both in the 64-bit xenial 7.5 but only the firmware in the 32-bit version. I assumed that the versions had the same drivers.

Good catch. Thank you.

If it has not been done already, a request for driver mt7601u should be posted in the 32-bit xenialpup-7.5 thread.

Good idea, since this issue has been around since 2016.
