Okay I've fixed the makefile to include an "install" rule .. so let's get rid of the old copy:
Code: [Select]
cd ~/Desktop
then
Code: [Select]
rm mt7610u-driver.tar.gz
then
Code: [Select]
rm -r mt7610u-driver



And now let's try again...

Connect with an ethernet cable and run these commands in sequence:
Code: [Select]
cd ~/Desktop
then
Code: [Select]
wget https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/11876059/mt7610u-driver.tar.gz
then
Code: [Select]
tar xvf mt7610u-driver.tar.gz
then
Code: [Select]
cd ~/Desktop/mt7610u-driver
then
Code: [Select]
make
then
Code: [Select]
sudo make install
then
Code: [Select]
sudo modprobe mt7610u
did wireless spring to life ?

If so, does it survive a reboot ?

If so, you can delete the mt7610u-driver directory from the desktop, but I suggest you keep the mt7610u-driver.tar.gz archive somewhere as you may need to rebuild the driver after a kernel upgrade.

Good morning  :)

It made it past the sudo make install, produced nothing for the sudo modprobe mt7610u, previously was FATAL8)  After reboot the wifi network, then became available with usual addresses, not before...?   :-\

When I inserted usb aerial and enter my wifi-password it did attempt to seek wifi signal, more of a tease than anything.  :-\  As our American buddies say, close, but no cigar lol.  :P

It seems that this usb aerial with its alleged dual band 2G and 5G signal is a sack of manure, do you know of a reasonable priced dongle that will give me preferably a minimum of 300mbps, which I can just plug and go..?   ;)

Before you look for another, what's the output from:
Code: [Select]
rfkill list
and
Code: [Select]
sudo lshw -C network
and
Code: [Select]
iwlist scan

that image is showing the wireless adapter as "DISABLED" .. yet the "lshw" output above doesn't show it as disabled  :-\

check it's not disabled with
Code: [Select]
sudo lshw -C network
and
Code: [Select]
rfkill list

and if it's NOT disabled, try deleting any wireless profiles in networkmanager and recreating one.

If I knew its device name, it might work. But how...?  :(

The old coal powered dongle identifies itself no probs.   ;)

You are confusing matters again by posting images of output from the old working adapter .. this is irrelevant, and just confuses matters .. I ONLY want info about the non-working adapter.

And can you not post images, rather the terminal output .. I can't copy/paste from an image.

what is the output from:
Code: [Select]
rfkill list

Okay you'll have to give me a day or so to test out some other drivers building against the 4.4 kernel in a VM, because I'm currently running the 4.8 kernel series so the build may be going differently.
(I'll try to do this tomorrow)

Meanwhile, let's get rid of that driver:
Code: [Select]
cd ~/Desktop/mt7610u-driver
then
Code: [Select]
sudo make uninstall

Okey Dokey mate   :D

Drivers uninstalled following your above instructions. Cheers  8)

Your earlier comment about possible issues arising after a kernel upgrade:

If so, you can delete the mt7610u-driver directory from the desktop, but I suggest you keep the mt7610u-driver.tar.gz archive somewhere as you may need to rebuild the driver after a kernel upgrade.

I have read somewhere (probably Pjotr's site), about pinning your known working kernel to eliminate potential issues with drivers after an upgrade.   ;)  I will bow to your opinion on this matter, if you do not think it is a wise move.   ;)
