Hmm, debian 9.x.0 installer actually screws this thing up and puts the adapted to sleep while it shutdown after installation for some reason with the non-free firmware is of course needed.

Easiest way to fix it seemed to be reboot, bios/efi and put network adapter pxe/boot up once and reboot again and seems to work miracles after.

-edit-

o yeah, and seems to affect 64-bit systems only (with 9.6.0 + non-free).

Well, sorry not a linux nerd came from the dark side

Just fighting with this same issue here. Only solution/way I got the NIC to raise back up was to boot with network, wlan was working just ok with 4.9.0-8-amd64 hd-media kernel and 9.6+nonfree firmware iso through install.

Are you talking about the exact same Mediatek mt-7612U wi-fi hardware that the OP hardware has, that we know already has no ready kernel driver and doesn't need any separate firmware package if you have to build that source yourself? If so, I can't make sense of what you're trying to say here.
