Dmesg output can be found here.

As per supplying firmware, I know that dkms (and all other driver sources, e.g. this) installs 'RT2870STA.dat' into '/etc/Wireless/RT2870STA/' but this seems to be only some kind of config file with plain text settings. There are also some binaries inside driver sources 'src/mcu/bin/' folder, such as 'MT7601.bin'. Previously, I had that bin file placed in '/lib/firmware' but deleted it and rebooted before getting `dmesg`output. It was there from previous tests but it didn't look like it was doing anything so I better removed it.

Other than that, there was no prompt or whatsoever to supply firmware. Again, I'm currently using the dkms package from PPA but I have once tried `rmmod` and `insmod` manually from built source and no firmware was asked for.
