[Bug 1220146] Re: Ralink Mediatek 14c3:7630 wi-fi card isn't supported out of the box


Ok I got wireless networking working using the MT7630 device under
Ubuntu 15.10 by following the procedure below.

I used benjarobin for a working driver and kuba-moo to get hold of a
couple of make files that simplify the installation.

Download the following files:

MT7630E-master.zip from https://github.com/benjarobin/MT7630E 
mt7630e-master.zip from https://github.com/kuba-moo/mt7630e

I used the "Download ZIP" button in both cases which appears at the
bottom of the RHS column of these pages.

Unzip both files and copy "Makefile" and "dkms.conf" from mt76303-master
to MT7630E-master.

Open a terminal and get to the MT7630E-master directory and then follow
the instructions at https://github.com/kuba-moo/mt7630e omitting the
"clone repo" steps as you already have the source, (git clone didn't
work for me due to a permission issue that I did not understand).

This procedure appeared to work for me, even after a computer restart,
(I had got it working without loading on restart and dkms in posts 273
and 274, but hopefully nothing is required above what I describe in this

Thanks to kuba-moo, benjarobin and mycodef.  Much appreciated.
