Cannot connect to internet leoxsys LEO NANO 150N wireless usb adapter even after
going through all the steps of topic 11154 on my linux mint 16 (petra) desktop.
The vendor ID 148f is MediaTek and 7601 is productID. Is there a linux driver for 7601
that can be compiled and integrated in the system?
The relevant outputs are listed below.

Hi nvs, and welcome to the forum :)

Whilst I've never tried compiling these against the 3.11 kernel, they certainly compile against 3.8

In best Blue Peter fashion .. here's one I prepared earlier:
http://peppermintos.net/viewtopic.php?p=41805#p41805

I'll repost my instructions here though:-

Ralink wireless driver 148f:7601 (for wireless adapters with the Ralink MT7601U chipset)

Make sure you have an active internet connection (connect to your router by an ethernet cable if you need to), then open a terminal and run these commands in sequence:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install linux-headers-generic build-essential
then
Code: [Select]
mkdir ~/MT7601-Driver
then
Code: [Select]
cd ~/MT7601-Driver
then
Code: [Select]
wget https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/11876059/DPO_MT7601U_LinuxSTA_3.0.0.4_20130913.tar.gz
then
Code: [Select]
tar xvf DPO_MT7601U_LinuxSTA_3.0.0.4_20130913.tar.gz
then
Code: [Select]
cd ~/MT7601-Driver/DPO_MT7601U_LinuxSTA_3.0.0.4_20130913
then
Code: [Select]
make
then
Code: [Select]
sudo make install
then
Code: [Select]
sudo modprobe mt7601Usta
Did wireless spring to life ?

If so, check it survives a reboot.

I tried to set up a wireless network connection from menu->preferences->network connections and entered connection name, SSID of my Belkin router,
mode infrastructure, router mac address for BSSID, and USB mac address for device mac address. In the router I added usb mac address in wireless access
control list and in wlan section of lan interface. With that set up I tried to connect to internet after disconnecting the wired connection. I could not connect to internet.

What am I doing wrong?

           Card-2: Ralink driver: rt2870
           IF: ra0 state: down mac: 12:34:56:00:09:43

After executing ifup -a,

ra0 state remains down.

OK, it seems to have gone back to using the rt2870 driver

What's the output from:

@nvs

If your copy and pasting these commands into the terminal, the second command should be

Code: [Select]
rfkill list

Undo whatever you did .. ie. delete all wireless connections in networkmanager.

Then reboot.

Are you sure you haven't disabled wireless with a hardware switch ?

I'm baffled by your not having any output from "rfkill list" .. and why the card has become "disabled"

Does removing the driver, then reinserting it make a difference ?:
Code: [Select]
sudo modprobe -r mt7601Usta
then
Code: [Select]
sudo modprobe mt7601Usta

After I deleted WiFi1 only Ethernet connection 1 is left as shown below.

[email protected] /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections $ ls
Ethernet connection 1

[email protected] ~ $ sudo modprobe -r mt7601Usta
[sudo] password for ravi:
[email protected] ~ $ sudo modprobe mt7601Usta
[email protected] ~ $

After that I created WiFi1 as indicated here

[email protected] ~ $ sudo cat /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/WiFi1
[sudo] password for ravi:
[connection]
id=WiFi1
uuid=70f89d0d-4558-4133-b5a4-a8e8fa12105e
type=802-11-wireless

[802-11-wireless]
ssid=SKS
mode=adhoc

mac-address=12:34:56:00:09:43

key-mgmt=wpa-psk
proto=rsn;
pairwise=ccmp;
group=ccmp;
psk=wh0ami?!

[ipv4]
method=auto

[ipv6]
method=auto

When I disconnected the wired Ethernet connection and I tried to switch on wireless connection
the connection name HOME appeared. Trying to turn that on repeatedly kept asking for password
authentication but never established connection. I deleted that connection. Rebooted the system.
Created a new connection with mode Ad-hoc.
[email protected] ~ $ sudo cat /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/WiFi1
[sudo] password for ravi:
[connection]
id=WiFi1
uuid=70f89d0d-4558-4133-b5a4-a8e8fa12105e
type=802-11-wireless

mac-address=12:34:56:00:09:43
security=802-11-wireless-security

[802-11-wireless-security]
key-mgmt=wpa-psk
proto=rsn;
pairwise=ccmp;
group=ccmp;
psk=********

[ipv4]
method=auto

[ipv6]
method=auto

Now clicking on the network icon at bottom right, disonnecting wired connection and clicking on
wireless shows unavailable and automatically creates a connection “Auto HOME” and goes into
authentication loop endlessly generating additional “Auto HOME” connections.

I am frustrated and ready to give up.  Anyway, it is 11:30 and I feel sleepy. Will resume tomorrow.

Why are you manually creating the connection ? .. is your wireless hidden ?

and why are you setting it as an adhoc network

Yes, I have set router to not broadcast SSID and I have also entered LEO NANO
ethernet address in wireless access control list and in the WLAN section of the LAN
interface.

After reading your comment I changed the Belkin router configuration to default
configuration and that created a wireless connection “Auto belkin.06C” listed below.

earth system-connections # cat Auto\ belkin.06C
[connection]
id=Auto belkin.06C
uuid=2bd95e60-74ca-4850-9bc7-37af1dc76fe1
type=802-11-wireless

[802-11-wireless]
ssid=belkin.06C
mode=infrastructure
security=802-11-wireless-security

[802-11-wireless-security]
key-mgmt=wpa-psk
auth-alg=open
psk=********

[ipv4]
method=auto

[ipv6]
method=auto

This connection is established but I cannot connect to the internet.
