Cheap $2 WiFi adapter to work on Raspberry Pi (mt7601)

Raspberry Pi mt7601 WiFi
Had this WiFi adapter since more than 9 months. Raspbian couldn’t recognize it. Further reading shows that the driver is not included in the kernel and might never be too.

I came across this project on Github but again, could not get it to compile.

Googling more, came across this post. Running the code below solved it 😀

$ wget
$ tar xzf mt7601-3.18.7-755.tar.gz
$ ./

Now I can complete my project about controlling a toy car by a phone’s gyroscope using REST API
