    You might email Mediatek and ask for a solution.
    I do not understand what you say about the files in XP. I could download it. I will write to TP-LINK and MEDIATEK to ask about it. thank you very much

    EDIT:

    I tried to install it with ndiswrapper but i have a problem, when I run ndiswrapper-n the argument is invalid

    Step 1: Download Windows Driver

    Step 2: $ aptitude install ndiswrapper-common ndiswrapper-utils-1.9

    Step 3: $ ndiswrapper -i RT2870.inf (WinXP driver)

    Code:
    $ ndiswrapper -l
    rt2870 : driver installed
        device (148F:7601) present
    Step 4: $ ndiswrapper -n

    Code:
    install/manage Windows drivers for ndiswrapper
    
    usage: ndiswrapper OPTION
    -i inffile       install driver described by 'inffile'
    -a devid driver  use installed 'driver' for 'devid' (dangerous)
    -r driver        remove 'driver'
    -l               list installed drivers
    -m               write configuration for modprobe
    -ma              write module alias configuration for all devices
    -mi              write module install configuration for all devices
    -v               report version information
    
    where 'devid' is either PCIID or USBID of the form XXXX:XXXX,
    as reported by 'lspci -n' or 'lsusb' for the card

    ndiswrapper is a method to use the Windows XP driver in Linux:
    DESCRIPTION
    ndiswrapper is two parts: user space tool that is used to install Win‐
    dows XP drivers and kernel module to load the Windows XP drivers. Both
    are called ndiswrapper.
    In addition to installing ndiswrapper on your system, you also need to find the XP inf and sys files appropriate to your architecture; either 32- or 64-bit. If you'd like to attempt ndiswrapper, you will need to find the XP inf and sys files.

    Your edit evidently crossed with my post.

    Please show us:
    Code:
    sudo ndiswrapper -ma
    sudo modprobe ndiswrapper
    dmesg | grep ndis

    Is yours a 32- or 64-bit system?
    Code:
    arch
    Is the Windows XP inf file specified as 32- or 64-bit? These details should match.

    Yes, the architectures match

    I catched the Windows XP x64 bits drivers

    and:

    Code:
    alejandro@AU1404:~$ arch
    x86_64

    Let's have a look at:
    Code:
    cat /var/log/syslog | grep ndis | tail -n20
