This may depend on HW configuration written in the EEPROM. My dongle
Linksys AE6000 do not require various features that Mediatek driver has,
those are not implemented in mt76x0 driver and should be added. Your
hardware may require those features.

You can try version of the driver from:
https://github.com/sgruszka/wireless-drivers-next/commits/mt76x0-draft-v2
which include various fixes and possibly can make things better
(or worse, there can be regressions too)

Cheers
