Ubuntu: Ubuntu doesn't see WIFI ! ASUS-K500CC


I know there were a lot of similar cases and I've tried to follow some of the answers on the web but none of them are working, or are causing more errors along the way.

I bought new ASUS -K500CC, install ubuntu 14.10 (then replace to 14.04) but there are no options were to connect to wifi. My router is working and all other devices are seeing it.

Here is some information, which can help you to help me.

~$ rfkill list all   0: asus-wlan: Wireless LAN  Soft blocked: no  Hard blocked: no  1: asus-bluetooth: Bluetooth  Soft blocked: no  Hard blocked: no    ~$ iwlist scan  eth0      Interface doesn't support scanning.    lo        Interface doesn't support scanning.    ~$ lspci | grep Network  03:00.0 Network controller: MEDIATEK Corp. MT7630e 802.11bgn Wireless Network Adapter  

Please help :((


  1. Download the driver for the MT7630e controller from this page
  2. In a terminal, cd ~/Downloads; unzip MT7630E-master.zip; cd MT7630E-master; sudo chmod +x install.sh (you will be prompted for sudo password), then ./install.sh
  3. Reboot

At this point the controller should be hard-blocked every time the system boots up, requiring to suspend to RAM and to resume in order to unblock it; to fix this:

  1. In a terminal: echo "options asus_nb_wmi wapf=4" | sudo tee /etc/modprobe.d/asus_nb.conf (you will be prompted for sudo password)
  2. Reboot

If this doesn't prevent the controller from being hard-blocked after boot, try this:

  1. In a terminal: sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/asus_nb.conf
  2. Replace 4 with 1 in this line: options asus_nb_wmi wapf=4
  3. Save
  4. Exit
  5. Reboot
