Description Eugene Shatokhin 2015-08-26 11:59:29 MSD
Here is one such device based on MT7610U: http://hw.rosalinux.ru/index.php?id=usb:148f-761a

The driver mt7601u does not handle these yet.

The drivers from Mediatek exist but, as it seems, are not maintained officially and may be of not-so-good quality for the present:
* http://www.mediatek.com/en/downloads1/downloads/mt7610u-usb/
* http://www.mediatek.com/en/downloads1/downloads/mt7612u/

The differences between these drivers and the official driver for MT7601U are not extremely large. So someone with sufficient skills could try to update mt7601u to handle these devices as well. This may require time though.
