AP driver for MT7601U chipset based adapters

Many USB WiFi dongles advertised to have an RT5370 chipset actually have an MT7601 chipset. There is not driver in Linux that support these devices in AP mode. This driver can be used to set up a hotspot with these devices. This should compile on most kernels without issue if the API's haven't been changed. If you're running Ubuntu or any of its derivatives, the kernels are most likely modified and may cause compilation errors.

Please create a pull request if you've worked on cleaning up some of the code as it is currently a mess to read.

How to build

$ git clone https://github.com/Anthony96922/mt7601u-ap
$ cd mt7601u-ap
$ make
$ sudo make install
$ sudo modprobe mt7601Uap

If the module has loaded then running sudo ip link set ra0 up will bring up a WiFi access point that you can connect your devices to. You can change the network name and the password by editing the file /etc/wifi/RT2870AP/RT2870AP.txt.

Cross compiling

This can be built for a different platform by setting LINUX_SRC to the kernel source directory, CROSS_COMPILE to your compiler and ARCH to the CPU architecture you are compiling for.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
