I don’t have this dongle but there’s an error message in the log:
mt76x0 1-1.4:1.0: Direct firmware load for mediatek/mt7610u.bin failed with error -2
I can’t find a file
/lib/firmware/mediatek/mt7610u.bin on my RPi but one does exist in
If the file exists in
/lib/firmware on your system – which it should – create a
mediatek directory and copy mt7610u.bin into it. Then reboot.
It looks like the 4.19 driver for MT7610U expects the firmware in a slightly different place. @apb0703 - can you confirm if this resolves the problem? I will be able to push a fix quite promptly if this is indeed the case.
I see quite a few topics regarding this issue and probably it’s better to paste the log here
Can you try this via SSH:
sudo mkdir -p /lib/firmware/mediatek sudo cp /lib/firmware/mt7610u_sta.template.dat /lib/firmware/mediatek/mt7610u.bin reboot
Otherwise, I can check this in a couple of hours.

@sam_nazarko Tried that but nothing changed,also please edit your post , because it might confuse anyone not experienced enough with Linux folders etc.
I am on hostapd based setup and for me its exactly an opposite issue
External USB card works, but internal (RP3 built-in wifi0) does not.
Seems hostapd is not fully compatible with the new kernel:
nl80211: interface wlan0 in phy phy1
nl80211: Set mode ifindex 4 iftype 3 (AP)
nl80211: Setup AP(wlan0) - device_ap_sme=1 use_monitor=0
nl80211: Subscribe to mgmt frames with AP handle 0x18ec0c0 (device SME)
nl80211: Register frame type=0xd0 (WLAN_FC_STYPE_ACTION) nl_handle=0x18ec0c0 match=
nl80211: Register frame command failed (type=208): ret=-22 (Invalid argument)
nl80211: Register frame match - hexdump(len=0): [NULL]
nl80211: Could not configure driver mode
nl80211: deinit ifname=wlan0 disabled_11b_rates=0
Tried the suggestion above. Did not work. I am getting no lights from the dongle. It is almost like after the update it bricked.
You need to be a bit more specific. Which suggestion?
Please provide logs again.
You’re getting this in the log:
Nov 02 20:52:16 osmc kernel: mt76x0 1-1.5:1.0: Invalid firmware image
What’s the output from running
There was a mistake in Sam’s post, which I’ve edited. Please re-read and try again.
I’m checking this now - as the path shouldn’t have actually changed…
Please provide full logs:
Update: It looks like it might be a kernel-related issue
I had previously used
rpi-updateto update the installed kernel (to 4.14.90-v7+). When I revert back to the stock kernel (4.14.79-v7+), things work as documented.
FYI, the previous OSMC kernel was 4.14.78-4.
Unfortunately the hostapd 2.4 shipped with Raspbian Stretch failed with Linux 4.18 and newer
It seems that you need version 2.7, which ships with Debian buster.
Thank you, that is what I’ve found as well.
I’ve solved the issue by adding stretch-backports to sources.list and forcing install the newest version of hostapd (Version: 2:2.7+git20190128+0c1e29f-4~bpo9+2)
Thanks for support
Running of Rasberry-Pi.
Just performed latest update and there is no longer any network connection (wi-fi).
There is also no “my-osmc” to try to fix it.
All I have are the standard “System” menu items.
System->System Info->Network says nothing connected, and check network settings.
A bit hard to do since those are in “my-osmc” and it has vanished.
Looks like I may be facing a re-build???
Moved your post here, depending on your WiFi dongle you would not need to reinstall
The alternative place to find the MyOSMC app is setting>add-ons>My add-ons>program add-ons>MyOSMC
Aside from that fixing your issue you have not given us enough to help you here. Logs would be a good place to start.
No dongle. Built-in. Was working perfectly before the update.
