OSMC

mt7601 driver, kernel 3.18.10-1-osmc

This is how I built and installed it.

Install compiler and make tools. Do this from a root terminal or add sudo infront of commands

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get install gcc make build-essential

Get kernel headers, after install you can find it in /usr/src/rbp2-headers-3.18.10-1-osmc

dpkg -i rbp2-headers-3.18.10-1-osmc_1_armhf.deb

Get the driver source. from porjo git repository with patch for stability and performance on recent kernel versions

git clone https://github.com/porjo/mt7601.git

Get kernel sources - needed to build the driver

tar -xvjpf rbp2-source-3.18.10-1-osmc.tar.bz2
sudo ln -s /home/osmc/rbp2-source-3.18.10-1-osmc/ /lib/modules/3.18.10-1-osmc/build

Prepare the kernel/module sources so the driver can build with them.

cd rbp2-source-3.18.10-1-osmc/
sudo make mrproper
cat /boot/config-3.18.10-1-osmc > .config
cp .config .config.org
sudo make modules_prepare
cp /usr/src/rbp2-headers-3.18.10-1-osmc/Module.symvers ./

Build the driver. You will see a lot of warnings just ignore them.

cd mt7601-master/src
sudo make

Install the driver. You should read the

README_STA_usb

in the MODULE folder for config info in the RT2870STA.dat.

mkdir -p /etc/Wireless/RT2870STA
sudo cp RT2870STA.dat /etc/Wireless/RT2870STA
sudo cp os/linux/mt7601Usta.ko /lib/modules/3.18.10-1-osmc/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/

Now reboot with the dongle inserted in a USB port. If you do an ifconfig -a you should see ra0 as a network device. Now you have the driver you need to config the wireless networking

you can download compiled driver for kernel 3.18.10 here
