I need some help with installing these drivers: http://www.tp-link.com/en/download/Archer-T2U.html#Driver

Some info:

$ uname -r

$ lsusb
Bus 003 Device 003: ID 148f:761a Ralink Technology, Corp.
  • Notice it says it is for kernel versions 2.6 through 3.16? What is your kernel version? From the terminal: uname -r What is your device? From the terminal: lsusb Please edit your question to add these details.

Connect to internet by ethernet, tethered or whatever means possible. Then run in terminal:

sudo apt-get install git build-essential linux-headers-generic
git clone https://github.com/Myria-de/mt7610u_wifi_sta_v3002_dpo_20130916.git
cd mt7610u_wifi_sta_v3002_dpo_20130916
sudo make install
sudo cp RT2870STA.dat  /etc/Wireless/RT2870STA/RT2870STA.dat


You will have to re-install it after each kernel upgrade. Please you keep the driver folder mt7610u_wifi_sta_v3002_dpo_20130916, then it will be quite easy.

You will need to run only:

cd mt7610u_wifi_sta_v3002_dpo_20130916
make clean
sudo make install
  • Worked! Thank you! Do you think this driver will be added to Ubuntu in the future? I also think there is little diod in this module, but it seems not to be working...

  • @liang Please start your own new question. I am not at all certain it can be made to work in 16.04 and later, but I'm very happy to try.
