There are several versions of this driver, but the best one needs a 4.x kernel. To find your kernel version, run the command: uname -r

For Puppies with 4.x kernels, like Xenial or Fatdog, see the next post.

However, the mt7601u driver will also work with several older Puppies after a kernel change. They include Slacko630+, Tahrpup602 and Tahrpup605. Here are the instructions for changing kernels:

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. Use this SAME package with Tahrpup.

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_changed-k4.1.11.pet. It works with both Slacko and Tahrpup.

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

----------------------

Tahr64 users can do a kernel-switch using the huge-4.1.11-slacko64_2.tar.bz2, then use the mt7601u_slacko64_630-k4.1.11.pet from the next post.

Here are some mt7601u drivers for Puppies with 4.x kernels. They do NOT require the above kernel change procedure.
