Well, I'd say it's possibly a completely different chip. Could you post the full device name?
If your device is Mediatek, you are going to need someone to help change the driver around to make it work. I have found the driver source and someone who is willing to do it if they get the adapter.

Driver source: http://www.mediatek.com/en/downloads/mt7610u-usb/

Someone willing to help possibly: https://github.com/kuba-moo

This device is pretty new though and would not be supported by most current drivers, and I haven't found a working one for it.

If they are asking for money, and you aren't willing to pay it, tell me how much and I might pay some.

What is your wifi adapter? What does command lsusb show?

Info I've found would appear to indicate the 148f:761a device uses the mt7610u chip set so is not supported by the mt7601 driver.

The full device name is a TP-Link Archer T2U. I checked around and it looks like a MT7610a chip is used in it.
Which is a completely different chip I now that I checked it.

Just to check I added the Archer T2U USB ID to the mt7601 driver and the Pi hangs so obviously it doesn't use that driver. I found a linux mt7610 driver at Mediatek but that fails to compile. I'm going to see if I can find any patches to get it to compile and the see if it will work. Just don't hold your breath waiting, I am not a programmer so whether I can get it to compile will be more by luck than anything else.

Hi wmeints,

I've managed to get the Mediatek driver to compile and I can install it on my Pi. The driver appears to be working, at least partly, as if I run command sudo iwlist wlan0 scan I get a list of nearby networks listed, so the wifi can see the wifi networks in my area. However, it is nearly impossible to get the wifi to get a connection to my AP.

I have been able to get it to connect using command sudo ifup --force wlan0 but the connection is lost after a minute or so and command ifconfig shows large numbers of dropped packets so this probably explains why the connection does not stay up.

Why it behaves like this I expect is due to problems in the code as when compiling it shows a large number of warnings. And one very strange thing about the driver is it's size. The mt7601 driver I use is about 750KBytes but the mt7610 drive is more than 16MBytes. Why it is this big I don't know unless it is being compiled in debug mode and the compile is maybe including a load of debug info.

So a little progress but I'm not sure I can make any further progress as my knowledge of C is very limited, and my knowledge of how USB and the wifi works is pretty much non-existent.

No problem, I think I will switch the adapter out for a realtek or the older MT chipset. This adapter acts up on my windows machine as well. Thanks for all the trouble, totally didn't expect you to try it out! Truly amazing!

Oh yeah, about the driver you compiled for my chip, it turns out it can't comment to my Wep 128bit Passkey Encrypted AdHoc wifi. I've tried wicd and network manager and the default wifi manager and by the terminal. None of which have worked, as in connected. :( But my iPod and all the other computer we have work with it. The AdHoc network chip on my laptop won't support WPA or WPA2 Encryption, so that's out of the question, although that is the only encryption I know works fine.

Hi! I've also tried to compile a kernel driver for the Archer T2U using a modified driver I found elsewhere:

Code: Select all

https://github.com/Myria-de/mt7610u_wifi_sta_v3002_dpo_20130916
The driver compiles, after installing the linux (git checkout a2ac0d1efb) and firmware (git checkout 5bb0317210) versions (I'm running: 4.0.5+ #797 PREEMPT Sat Jun 20 00:47:38 BST 2015), and after executing this commands before make :

Code: Select all

make mrproper && make bcmrpi_defconfig && make modules_prepare && cp ../firmware/extra/Module.symvers .
...as you explained in other thread for other adapters.

Unfortunately, I don't even get the driver to load (it crashes everytime I plug the driver). Since the instructions in the mentioned github code are for Ubuntu, do you know what changes are needed for compiling with RPi? How did you manage to compile it? Did you make any progress with this adapter?

Thx.

Re: Help installing wifi dongle driver

Hi n_v,

One problem you will have is the firmware commit-id as 5bb0317210 is for 3.12.22+ #690. The firmware commit-id should be e8f6e12c0f for the newest version of 4.0.5+ #797.

I didn't have much luck compiling for 3.18 but I've just download the version you linked to and compiled that and it appears to be working, although I haven't done much with it, but at least it is now connected to my wifi network. I am using it on a Pi 2B.

I did see something rather odd though when pinging my ISP's timeserver

Code: Select all

[email protected] ~ $ ping ntp0.zen.co.uk
PING ntp0.zen.co.uk (212.23.8.6) 56(84) bytes of data.
WARNING: kernel is not very fresh, upgrade is recommended.
From ntp0.admin.zen.net.uk (212.23.8.6): icmp_seq=2 Destination Host Prohibited
From ntp0.admin.zen.net.uk (212.23.8.6): icmp_seq=3 Destination Host Prohibited
64 bytes from ntp0.admin.zen.net.uk (212.23.8.6): icmp_req=4 ttl=56 time=39.4 ms
64 bytes from ntp0.admin.zen.net.uk (212.23.8.6): icmp_req=5 ttl=56 time=38.8 ms
I've never seen anything like that before.

I have cross-compiled the driver using a Ubuntu 14.0.2 system. There have been issues with some wifi modules being compiled on a Pi causing the kernel to crash, especially on the new Pi 2B, but when cross-compiled on a PC the drivers no longer crash the Pi so I cross-compiled this one as well and it only takes a few minutes.

If you want to try it you can download and install it using commands

Code: Select all

wget http://www.fars-robotics.net/mt7610-4.0.5-797.tar.gz
tar xzf mt7610-4.0.5-797.tar.gz
./install.sh
The ./install.sh command installs two versions of the driver for both Pi 2B and all other versions of the Pi. I have only tried it on a Pi 2B.

As with the previous version I compiled the size of the module is excessively large and I don't know why. The mt7601 driver I use is 742912 bytes (~ 0.7MB) but the mt7610 driver is 17752358 bytes (~ 17MB). I have no idea why it is so big but I think it may be because it possibly includes a load of debug data or other rubbish but I don't really know if it does or not. I had a look at the Makefile to see if debug data was included but couldn't make any sense of it.

Many thanks! Your version works for me! I have been using it for several hours now. I'm using the good old Pi 1B.

Btw: when pinging the timeserver you mentioned, I get the same "Destination Host Prohibited" messages.

I plan to recompile it myself, with the correct firmware commit-id version. I will come back if I find any issues.

The compile is expecting a link to the linux source code. You can generate it using the command

Code: Select all

sudo ln -s /home/pi/src/linux /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/build
You will need to set the directory /home/pi/src/linux to the directory where your linux source is stored.

Reboot to run the driver.

If you have already configured your wifi it should start up and connect to your
wireless network.

If you have not configured your wifi you will need to do that to enable the wifi.

You are probably trying to install the wrong version of the driver.

Please post the output from commands uname -a and lsusb.

Just seen your other post. I've loaded the mt7610-4.1.6-v7-810.tar.gz driver on dropbox so you should be able to install it now.

lsmod shows the 8192cu wifi driver is loaded so it appears your wifi uses the 8192cu driver and not the mt7610 wifi driver, unless you have more than one wifi module connected to your Pi.

What is the output from command lsusb so I can see what driver your wifi should use.

Please post the output from commands uname -a and lsusb.

Just seen your other post. I've loaded the mt7610-4.1.6-v7-810.tar.gz driver on dropbox so you should be able to install it now.


MrEngman
lsmod shows the 8192cu wifi driver is loaded so it appears your wifi uses the 8192cu driver and not the mt7610 wifi driver, unless you have more than one wifi module connected to your Pi.

What is the output from command lsusb so I can see what driver your wifi should use.

Hi sassabetudo,

Sorry for not getting back sooner.

I tried connecting an 8192cu wifi and mt7610 wifi to one of my Pi's. First I connected a powered hub and plugged both wifi dongles into the hub. The mt7610 wifi was difficult to get a connection.

Still using the hub I left the 8192cu wifi connected to the hub and removed the mt7610 wifi and connected it directly to my Pi and then finally got both wifi working.

As you also have a Bluetooth dongle there is a good chance there may be a problem with interference between the different dongles or possibly a power issue, even if you are using a powered hub. To avoid interference you could try connecting the wifi dongles to the hub using USB extension cables. You can then position the dongles some distance from each other.

As you have two wifi dongles connected how are you trying to use them? An access point or connecting to two different networks or what?
