RE: can not install usb wifi driver :(
Can you provide the information requested in "Please read before you post"

Also provide details of what happens when you try and connect with xbian-config - Kodi and ssh versions.

Please read before you post

Try this instead, it seems you are using the one for an older kernel. You have 3.18.7, you tried installing one for 3.18.6
cd /tmp
wget https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/67643651/mt7601_3.18.7-v7.tar.gz
sudo tar xf mt7601_3.18.7-v7.tar.gz -C /
sudo depmod 3.18.7-v7+
sudo reboot

Hi,
I'm almost on the same situation my kernel is the 4.1.6+ and the usb dongle is one with the following lsusb -vvv:
I download the linux headers for the 4.1.6+ and the proper mt7610u driver for that version (I belive), but when installing the module it gives and error possiblie due to the Module.symvers file that I had to download becaouse I coundnt find the one from xbian.

Anyway dont you have an allready compiled module for this one?


I'll keep trying to compile it my self but for the moment I dont have any success.

Thank you very much


PS: The kernell 4.2 should have this driver include on the relase I did read some where... (INTERNET IS SO BAST Wink )
