OS: Ubuntu 14.04 LTS

alex416, Saw your post and was also looking for the same answer to your question. Have just fixed my TP-Link AC600 to work on my linux machine.

Follow these instructions (http://hprath.com/2014/06/cisco-linksys-ae6000-ac580-media-tek-mt7610u-mt7630u-mt7650u-linux-x64-driver-patch/) and you should be up and running.

Note: The page gives background information to the problem, but you just really need the section titled "Important – Steps to build driver from sources". All the commands are done in the terminal:


  1. Unplug Wifi dongle from USB

  2. update your sources and upgrade if any sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade

  3. install gnu compiler collection sudo apt-get install build-essential

  4. lets install git

    sudo apt-get install git 
  5. get sources

    git clone https://[email protected]/sanrath/mediatek_mt7610u_sta_driver_linux-64bit.git
    • if you have cloned already

      cd mediatek_mt7610u_sta_driver_linux-64bit    git pull
  6. build driver

    cd mediatek_mt7610u_sta_driver_linux-64bit    
    make clean
    sudo make install 

    There should not be any errors in last commands

  7. After the last command connect your USB Wifi adapter to any USB port. Now it must have listed all visible wifi signals(SSIDs). Connect to internet

  8. open a browser and test internet !!

Not sure what system you have (64-bit or 32-bit) but this is for a 64-bit system.
