i did the following commands :

tar xzf mt7601-3.18.12-782.tar.gz
./install.sh

it gave no errors. i did a reboot but the wifi adapter is not working. can anyone help?
Try this instead

Code: Select all

Notice the similarity between your uname -a command output and the filename you need to use.

Hey MrEngman

I searched through the thread and couldn't find a version for RPI 2 uname Linux raspberrypi 3.18.13-v7+ #784 SMP PREEMPT Sat May 9 15:57:36 BST 2015 armv7l GNU/Linux. I wasn't able to find an index on dropbox for the files you have posted. Do you think you could compile for this version?

thanks

Edit: I found your post on how to find your Dropbox version files and I got the one I needed. Thank you :)

Glad you figured it out. I use a standard format for my driver files so you should now be able to keep your driver up to date if you update your code.

Thank you so much, have been trying to compile for days!

managed to get past insmod, all the way to wpa_supplicant daemon failed to start. I assume that I had a bad copy of the mt7601 driver source. Would you mind linking to the source you used and any patches that were required?

I would like to be able to build my own when a new release comes out.

Hi

I've just installed osmc on my new Raspberry Pi 2 B and can't get the wifi to work.
The kernel naming looks different on the RC3 and I can't see a download with a name like it listed in this thread

From memory uname -a starts "3.18.13-1-osmc #1 "

Any suggestions.....

Thanks

I would get the source for osmc, and the driver and just compile them.

I did this on Raspbian and it worked.

Finding the correct version of the source/firmware for osmc may be the hard part, but may not, check Google for that one.

You will probably have to upgrade gcc/g++ to 4.8.4, from Jessie rather than wheezy. See /etc/apt/sources.list

The driver source is available at github.com/porjo/mt7601.git

This works...

sudo make install
sudo mkdir -p /etc/Wireless/RT2870STA/
sudo cp RT2870STA.dat /etc/Wireless/RT2870STA/
sudo modprobe mt7601Usta

Your wireless should now be working.

You have compiled the driver for your current kernel version only. When Update Manager installs a later linux-image, after the required reboot, you must re-compile:

cd mt7601/src
make clean
make
sudo make install
sudo modprobe mt7601Usta

Please retain the files and these instructions for that time. Glad it's working!"

That worked , Thank you !

I've got another question: do you know how I can set 2 WiFi dongles one to listen and one to send out signal. I've followed the adafruit guide to make a WiFi access point, but I want it to work with 2 WiFi dongle.

Also it seems when I start the access point and I try to connect from my phone it keeps stuck on verifying and then the network shutdown or it connects for couple of second and then the network shutdowns. Do you have any experience with this.

I'm sorry if I shouldn't be asking it here, but I really want your help. I've googled and tried but still network keeps shutting down or stuck on verifying.

I'm sorry for my bad English, I hope you can understand what my problem is

Hi guys! I just recently bought my first rpi, the rpi A+ I have this cheap ra2870 Mt7601 wifi adapter too. I am on raspbian wheezy 3.18.11+ #781 so I was able to download and ./install.sh the file from your dropbox MrEngman! The adapter was plugged in, I installed, rebooted, then I was able to connect to my router! I was installing chromium but after 3 minutes the wifi signal would
change to an ethernet icon and the download would stop. I reboot to see if wifi will come back, but now the adapter isn't even recognized by lsusb and the modules didnt load like the first time; so I replugged it and the ethernet icon came on, not the wifi.

The worst part, now when I reboot with the adapter plugged, I get kernel panics all the time. Also when I start without the adapter, then plug the adapter when the gui has loaded, the rpi freezes too.

I don't wanna buy 4 dollar adapters no more; haha :)) help please!! I use a 4 port powered hub connected to a powerbank with 2.1A output, screen is hdmi on a 40"tv. The rpi is backfed, 1 port goes to mouse, another to keyboard, and third to wifi adapter. 4th unused.
Btw I will upload my dmesg and iwconfig and ipconfig, lsusb and lsmod during and after the 3 minute thing.

Sounds like it may be a power supply issue and perhaps your SD card image could now be corrupted. I assume you are powering your Pi via the USB hub which is probably not a good idea but perhaps someone else could confirm if this is OK or not.

I will try reflashing raspbian. Before this, my raspi already had history of power being pulled out without proper shutdown methods. I will try getting a replacement too.

Additional info on the ethernet icon thingy I got before: it shows it has connection to some "11n-AP" which doesnt exist in my home, When I turn my wifi router off, it still shows connected to that ESSID.

Update: Yeah, I got a different wifi dongle with the same price from the shop, and this one works plug-and-play. Thanks for all the help Mr Engman!

I'm using version 3.18.11 on the Pi-2, and I've used the wifi driver given but when I try and connect to my chosen network it gives me an internal IP address of 192.168.**.*** rather than an external. All settings are correct. Any body help?

Also before the update I could access the wifi gui in the top right hand corner, but now it just says dhcpdc not running.

"before the update"? - did you do an update or just install the wifi. How did you install the wifi? If the wifi has been correctly installed and the setting are correct then your wifi should be working.

How do you connect to the internet, via a modem/router or some other way. The wifi normally gets the IP from the router and this will most usually be 192.168.xx.xx unless you set a static address. Or do you expect to connect to some other address.

Can you please post the output of commands

Code: Select all

uname -a
lsusb
lsmod
ifconfig -a
cat /etc/network/interfaces
sudo cat /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf

Hi All,
where can i find the link for the 3.18.11+ #781 version?
i tried the drivers mentioned previously for the 3.18.11 but probably they do not work correctly.
if i install the mentioned driver and i restart the network interfaces i get the following errors when the pi tries to bring up wlan0

ioctl[SIOCSIWPMKSA]: Network is down
ioctl[SIOCSIWMODE]: Network is down

but the card still responds to the ping, even after restarting the pi the card still works.

What is the output of commands uname -a and lsusb to check your kernel version and wifi dongle to ensure you get the right driver version.

For Dynamode and equivalent wifi modules the download and install commands for 3.18.11+ #781 is

Code: Select all

wget https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/80256631/mt7601-3.18.11-781.tar.gz
tar xzf mt7601-3.18.11-781.tar.gz
./install.sh
For Pi 2b kernel will be 3.18.11-v7+ #781 and the driver download and install commands are

Code: Select all

wget https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/80256631/mt7601-3.18.11-v7-781.tar.gz

Thanks for the quick reply.
the version i have is raspberry B+:
3.18.11+ #781

the adapter is:
148f:7601 Ralink Technology, Corp.

on a second unit i installed the latest driver as you suggested in your previous post, just run the latest upgrades on the os and when i plug the stick now i get kernel panic messages.

what can i do to fix this?

For future reference the driver filename is a standard format using kernel version (without "+") and build number (without the "#") which you can determine using command uname -a.

Hi vannimb,

Can you post the output from commands

Code: Select all

ifconfig
cat /etc/network/interfaces
sudo cat /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf
to check your wifi configuration.

You could try command

Code: Select all

sudo ifup --force wlan0
or as an alternative commands

Code: Select all

sudo ifdown wlan0
sudo ifup wlan0
to see if that will bring up your wifi.
