It worked with the pre-installed Ubuntu, but after re-installing Ubuntu dual-boot with Windows 8.1, the WiFi is not working.
Is there a driver for this adapter that will work on Ubuntu 12.04?
Open a terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T), then run the following commands:
sudo apt-get install git build-essential git clone https://github.com/neurobin/MT7630E.git cd MT7630E/ chmod +x install test uninstall sudo ./install
Works like a charm for me (Asus TP300LD).
A better solution is to install the driver using DKMS. This way you won't need to re-install it after kernel uprades. Do it this way:
sudo apt-get install git dkms build-essential git clone https://github.com/neurobin/MT7630E.git cd MT7630E/ sudo make dkms
P.S. Latest Unity will not work on 3.5 so you will have to install alternative DE.
In my case (ubuntu desktop 16.04.4 LTS) this worked
Download release package from https://github.com/neurobin/MT7630E/archive/release.zip
unzip the zip file and in the unzipped directory
sudo chmod +x install sudo ./install
