How to install driver for TP-LINK T2U wifi adapter on Linux?

How to install driver for TP-LINK T2U wifi adapter on Linux? I am using Fedora Linux 22.

The kernel module for the driver for TP-LINK T2U is “mt7650u_sta”. TP-LINK and mediatek provide drivers (mediatek one is for 7610u). But neither work for Fedora 22 AFAIK.

This piece of modified driver work for me on Fedora 22 with kernel 4.1.6-201.fc22.x86_64.

The instruction is for Ubuntu, the differences for Fedora 22 is the packages to be installed to build the driver.

As far as I know, the driver is further modified based/following this post http://hprath.com/2014/06/cisco-linksys-ae6000-ac580-media-tek-mt7610u-mt7630u-mt7650u-linux-x64-driver-patch/ which shows the procedure the driver is modified from mediatek’s.
