I am trying to get my wifi adapter running being a newbie I am stuck, I have however searched internet a lot and found nothing useful. So, Here's the situation.
It is a ralink device
It is being listed in lsusb as:
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 148f:7601 Ralink Technology, Corp.MT7601U Wireless Adapter
I think its being listed in lsmod too as it shows
mt7601u in the list
Now ifconfig-a test is negative since there isn't any wlan0 listed there's just
eth0 and lo
Kindly help me out I am really frustated now. I've run
but still nothing.
EDIT I am powering the pi with a 2.1A power adapter so I think its unlikely to be a power issue. And dmesg is as follows
157.457955] usb 1-1.4: new high-speed USB device number 4 using dwc_otg [ 157.924137] usb 1-1.4: New USB device found, idVendor=148f, idProduct=7601 [ 157.924163] usb 1-1.4: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=3
