The above tutorial will work if you have the 3.12 kernel. I recently used the 2016-01-07-wheezy-raspbian for a project which had the 3.10 kernel, so needed to follow the advice given in this post in order to get up and running. i have also listed the steps below and uploaded a copy of the driver needed. mt7601u-3-10-25-622-tar

wget https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/80256631/MT7601U-3.10.25-622.tar.gz
tar -xzvf MT7601U-3.10.25-622.tar.gz
sudo rm -rf /etc/Wireless/RT2870STA
sudo mkdir /etc/Wireless/RT2870STA
sudo cp RT2870STA.dat /etc/Wireless/RT2870STA/.
sudo install -p -m 644 mtutil7601Usta.ko /lib/modules/3.10.25+/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/
sudo install -p -m 644 mt7601Usta.ko /lib/modules/3.10.25+/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/
sudo install -p -m 644 mtnet7601Usta.ko /lib/modules/3.10.25+/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/
sudo depmod 3.10.25+

Do this then follow the first tutorial to rename the ra0 and setup a static IP
