Today’s hero is Jakub Kicinski. He rewrote the Mediatek MT7630e drivers to clean up the code and work with the new kernels. I have been waiting for someone to do this since they (ubuntu) moved forward from kernel 3.13.xxxx.
Kudo’s to Mr. Kicinski!
Here is the link: github kuba-moo/mt7630e
Do a git clone of his code and then… Build as he spells out (simple steps) in his README.md file.
