There are several versions of this driver:

a. The original vendor code works with old k2.x kernels like Wary.

b. There is an updated version for k3.x, but it only works in a few Puppies like Precise.

c. There is a stable open-source driver, but it needs k4.x. However, it will work with several Puppies after a kernel change. They include Slacko593, Slacko630, Tahrpup602 and Tahrpup605. Here are the instructions:

1. If your Puppy does NOT have the change_kernels tool, install it from the PET below.

2. Download the huge-4.1.11-slacko_PAE.tar.bz2 package from here.

3. Extract the package. It has two files: vmlinuz-4.1.11-slacko_PAE and kernel-modules.sfs-4.1.11-slacko_PAE.

4. Open a terminal and run: change_kernels.

5. Drop the above two files into the two input boxes. Click OK.

6. Reboot.

7. Install the mt7601u_slacko630-k4.1.11.pet. It works with both Slacko and Tahrpup.

8. Reboot again if your adapter is not initially detected.

Here is the mt7601u driver for Xenial_701 k4.5.2. Because this is a 4.x kernel, the above change is NOT required.
