I did a fresh install of Openelec 7.0.1 and I've a problem with the wifi USB dongle.
Some time the wifi start well, but after some minutes stop working: the USB seem to disconnect and reconnect continuously.
Other times when I started Openelec, the wifi doesn't start at all.

If I plug the USB dongle in my notebook I read this:
[ 400.178424] ieee80211 phy1: rt2x00_set_rt: Info - RT chipset 5390, rev 0502 detected

In some forums I found it can be solved by installing linux firmware nonfree, but Openelec don't permit to install new packages with apt-get.

I found also this github.com/OpenELEC/OpenELEC.tv/issues/2435
Does anyone know how to use this RT chipset 5390 USB wifi with Openelec and RP2?
