Please verify if it has Linux driver, if nit install kernel 4.14.9 , reboot and test.

14 sudo dkms build mt7610u_sta/1.0
15 sudo dkms install mt7610u_sta/1.0
16 reboot
If that github actually does work, better instructions would be

Code: Select all

sudo apt install git dkms build-essential
git clone https://github.com/xtknight/mt7610u-linksys-ae6000-wifi-fixes.git
sudo dkms add mt7610u-linksys-ae6000-wifi-fixes
sudo dkms install mt7610u_sta/1.0
Then check EFI Secure Boot status with

Code: Select all

mokutil --sb-state
Any response other than Secure Boot is enabled should be good

Sorry my bad English, I'm from Brazil..!!

I could not do with this method.

I managed with the method below:
https://github.com/ivannieto/archer-t2u ... -installer

##You should have python3 installed. If you not, type:
sudo apt install python3

##You should have git installed. If you not, type:
sudo apt install git

bash
$ git clone https://github.com/ivannieto/archer-t2u ... taller.git
$ cd archer-t2u-ubuntu-installer/ && python3 t2u-driver-installer.py

##Restart your computer when the installation is finished

##Once you had restarted, you can enable or disable the driver. Plug your USB dongle and run:

bash
$ sudo t2u-driver
## e = Enable
## d = Disable

##To uninstall t2u-driver type:

bash
$ sudo uninstall-t2u-driver
