PostPosted: Sun 22 Mar 2015, 12:38    Post subject:  Mediatek mt7610u USB WiFi Driver for 802.11ac  

This is another next-generation AC-mode driver for devices like the Linksys AE6000. There are several issues for Puppy.

1. 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.

2. I have built and tested the driver for tahrpup_602_PAE-k3.14.20. The PET is too large to post on the forum. If anyone owns a compatible device, please make a request. The vendor:product IDs are 0E8D:7650, 0E8D:7630, 13B1:003E and 148F:7610.

3. The above package is built to work with conventional B/G/N routers. If you have an AC router, some changes are required to get maximum performance. Locate the configuration file /etc/Wireless/RT2870STA/RT2870STA.dat. On Line 9, change WirelessMode=9 to some higher setting, possibly 13. (This is untested.) A reboot may be required after changing the configuration.

4. The adapter identifies itself as ra0, not the usual wlan0.

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.

I had forgotten that, thank you. Smile
