MT7612U USB adapter not working

I have a MediaTek MT7612U USB WIFI adapter that I'm trying to get working on a Raspberry Pi 4B, but I'm not having any luck. The same device works with plug & play in Windows (so it's not defective). The output from iw list does not include the device. Here is some other troubleshooting output:

Can anybody help? Thanks!

kmod-mt76x2u is required. You are missing it.

Sorry for the late reply, but that did indeed fix it. Thank you, both!
