Searching for vendor and product ID gave some results like [1]. From
that link I found out that the module name should be something like
mt7601. While such a module name doesn't exist for the standard 14.04
kernel, I also checked the latest HWE kernel for 14.04 - that would be
the package "linux-generic-lts-wily". There the module name is mt7601u
and "modinfo mt7601u |grep 760B" has this output:

alias:          usb:v148Fp760Bd*dc*dsc*dp*ic*isc*ip*in*
alias:          usb:v0E8Dp760Bd*dc*dsc*dp*ic*isc*ip*in*

So the first of these two lines indicates, that your part should be
supported by the wily kernel.
