Could you please tell me how did you made it work on Debian 8 Jessie. I have this card with identical USB ID. It don't works on Jessie even with kernel 4.9 from backports. On /lib/modules/3.16.0-4-amd64/modules.alias is no alias with id 0B05p166Ad. You can check this easili with grep. The only kernel that worked with it, was linux-image-liquorix-amd64 from third party liquorix repository. On Jessie kernel iw list shows no wlan interface. Manual module load with modprobe gives nothing. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by [[User:{{{1}}}|{{{1}}}]] ([[User talk:{{{1}}}|talk]] • [[Special:Contributions/{{{1}}}|contribs]]) .

CONFIG_RT2800USB_UNKNOWN or another kernel config flag was probably not enabled for the kernel you are using. The latest stretch kernel, for example, has it disabled.
If you modprobe rt2800usb and then add the device ID at runtime (echo -n "0b05 166a" > /sys/bus/usb/drivers/rt2800usb/new_id) it should work.

Thank You M86. You are right on my kernel # CONFIG_RT2800USB_UNKNOWN is not set. I added the device ID at runtime after modprobe and everything works. You made me happy:).
