are you sure you have a wl167g v2 with RT73 Chipset? https://wikidevi.com/wiki/ASUS_WL-167g_v2 = rt73usb

because there is also a 

v1https://wikidevi.com/wiki/ASUS_WL-167g_v1 = rt2500usb

and

v3https://wikidevi.com/wiki/ASUS_WL-167g_v3 = RTL8188SU

 

which version of armbian do you use? legacy or mainline kernel?

 

I dont know if it helps, but normally installed is the package "armbian-firmware"

There seem to be a "bigger" package called "armbian-firmware-full" and a special package for realtek called "firmware-realtek"

 

armbian-firmware - Linux firmware
armbian-firmware-full - Linux firmware-full
firmware-realtek - Binary firmware for Realtek wired/wifi/BT adapters

 

You could try to install firmware-realtek or armbian-firmware-full for getting the firmware of your rt73

 Yes, it is ASUS WL-167g v2,  ID 0b05:1723 (Now i see, driver Ralink RT2571W) 

Armbian version 5.38 stable. (ubuntu desktop 16.04 kernel 3.4.113-sun7i)

what did you change to get the driver?

Just install firmware. Nothing else. I guess i need firmware rt73.bin. And i have it. but  doesn't work. I tried manually add module: modprobe rt73usb, then rtx00usb, rtx00lib and was loaded without errors. 

I download rt73 and tried install it, before, tried install linux-firmware all-043.deb, firmware-ralink all.deb.  I think problem with  modul rt2x00.  Dmesg show :

rt2x00lib_request_firmware: Error - failed to request Firmware.

Login as root and run:


apt install armbian-firmware-full 

or manually it that won't work - check this: http://mitchtech.net/realtek-wireless-dongle-rt3070-on-the-raspberry-pi/

 

Remember to reboot or reload the module.

I tried install armbian-firmware-full. Nothing happens,   wifiusb firmware missing. But i can see firmware rt73.bin in /lib/firmware/

I think the rt73.bin isnt the right firmware.... it seems that you need the rt2870.bin
