Getting MediaTek Inc. USB Wifi Adapter to Work

Hello, Newbie Corner.

I'm trying to use a MediaTek Inc. USB Wifi Adapter, but no matter what I do I cannot seem to get it to work.

Using ip link only lists my loopback and wired connection (lo and enp0s31f6 respectively). The adapter is not shown.

Performing lsusb lists the adapter under:

Bus 001 Device 007: ID 0e8d:7610 MediaTek Inc.

I have tried installing the following two packages:

https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/mt76 … -dkms-git/
https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/mt7610u_wifi_sta/

After installing I used the following command and recieved an output of:

sudo modprobe mt7610u_sta
modprobe: FATAL: Module mt7610u_sta not found in directory /lib/modules/4.15.7-1-ARCH

Any help would be greatly appreciated. If any information is needed that I didn't include, just let me know and I'll find it. I'm only now advancing past the lurking stage of the Arch Forums.

How did you successfully build and install mt7610u_wifi_sta 4606187-3 ?

Re: Getting MediaTek Inc. USB Wifi Adapter to Work

@loqs: You can sucessfullly build and install the dkms package, but it won't be able to create a module for the 4.15 kernel as it fails to compile it.

See also the pinned comment on mt7610u_sta-dkms-git.

It seems that this fork works with 4.15:
https://github.com/BZHDeveloper/mt7610u … linux-4.15

This is an effort to clean up the driver and include it into the linux kernel

Re: Getting MediaTek Inc. USB Wifi Adapter to Work

@progandy that does seem to raise the question why are these two packages in AUR?

Re: Getting MediaTek Inc. USB Wifi Adapter to Work

That is the question. Marking it out of date is probably correct, but since I don't have the hardware to test the new version, I won't do that.

Any best practices for using these? I'm a little hesitant to mess with packages outside of the official and user repositories since I don't want a bunch of poorly managed programs all over my system.

And is there one you would recommend over another? The instructions included in the 4.15 fork seem straight forward so I was leaning towards that, but wasn't sure if there was something else to keep in mind.

Thanks for the input, guys.

Re: Getting MediaTek Inc. USB Wifi Adapter to Work

You should be able to change the git source in the dkms-git package to the BZHDeveloper fork.

source=("${_pkgbase}"::"git+https://github.com/BZHDeveloper/mt7610u_wifi_sta_v3002_dpo_20130916.git#branch=linux-4.15"

For the other one, that may work as well, but I am not sure.

Re: Getting MediaTek Inc. USB Wifi Adapter to Work

@progandy I'll give it a shot when I get to my computer this afternoon and let you know if it works. Thank you.

@loqs any chance you could briefly explain, or even just drop a link that explains, what/why you changed in the PKGBUILD you posted? If you had the time, I figure it'd be a nice learning opprotunity. I completely understand if you don't though.

Re: Getting MediaTek Inc. USB Wifi Adapter to Work

pkgname so that it has a unique pkgname ending in -git as the package use the latest git commit.
arch to 'x86_64' it was 'any' but the package generates an x84_64 binary so it should be marked for that architecture.
url to the new github page,  same for source remove patches from source and checksum arrays.
_extramodules=extramodules-4.15 the extra modules directory for the current linux package,  external modules should be placed in extramodules not mixed with the in tree modules.
standard pkgver function for a git repo that does not use tags
install firmware to /usr/lib/firmware
install kernel module to usr/lib/modules/${_extramodules}/
edit:
grammar added ,
