NOTE: There are official sources for the drivers - as noted by some other answer here - but those don't (usually(?)) compile/work out of the box.
Also, the newest version doesn't work for me (Debian 8 with standard x64 kernel:
3.16.0-4-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.16.39-1 (2016-12-30) x86_64 GNU/Linux
) - what does (still) work for me is commit
There is an easier solution than trying to use the manufacturer's source (taken from this (German) site):
Just run (with the device being unplugged)
sudo apt-get install git build-essential
git clone https://github.com/Myria-de/mt7610u_wifi_sta_v3002_dpo_20130916.git
sudo make install
and reboot. As indicated above, you might want to
git checkout 4606187110b323c272aed504144ee759b31af8ac before running
make install. For instance, the newest version
- Caused it to freeze
- Didn't integrate with NetworkManager, ...
and who knows what else.
Worked for me, I also have the Archer T2U, with the same USB-device. I run another system ( I used this with LMDE, kernel 3.11, now I'm on Debian (see above)), however the solution I have linked was tried with the following setups:
- Ubuntu 14.04.2 LTS, linux kernel 126.96.36.199, gcc 4.8.2
- Ubuntu 15.04, linux kernel 3.19.0-15, gcc 4.9.2
So there might be a good chance, that this will work for you.
The author(s) simply modified the MT7610U linux driver from the MediaTek homepage to compile for your device as well as a couple of other ones based on the same chipset.
If you feel like it, you can probably run some command to diff the linked source and the one from MediaTek since directory trees and source file are probably no different from the MediaTek source.
UPDATE: There is another site that may be helpful, if you want to go into fixing the original source yourself instead of following the above instructions:
