Connect to internet by ethernet, tethered or whatever means possible. Then run in terminal:

sudo apt-get install git build-essential linux-headers-generic
git clone https://github.com/Myria-de/mt7610u_wifi_sta_v3002_dpo_20130916.git
cd mt7610u_wifi_sta_v3002_dpo_20130916
sudo make install
sudo cp RT2870STA.dat  /etc/Wireless/RT2870STA/RT2870STA.dat


You will have to re-install it after each kernel upgrade. Please you keep the driver folder mt7610u_wifi_sta_v3002_dpo_20130916, then it will be quite easy.

You will need to run only:

cd mt7610u_wifi_sta_v3002_dpo_20130916
make clean
sudo make install
