Support Ralink/Mediatek Wifi for kernel 4.2

Asked by frank9184 on 2015-12-28

Mediatek provided driver is too old for ubuntu 15.10 with kernel 4.2.

I have a rt2870/my7610u (Asus USB AC51)and I try driver which is in Asus or Mediatek website

But I can't use "make" to make file ,and I got "error 2" from the terminal .

It's a big problem , please fix it.

I forgot to tell you

I'm using Phone tethering

All I can suggest is report a bug. The latest mainline kernel may resolve this issue.

Can you help with this problem?
