netgear N150 Drivers

I'm new to linux I have a Compac Presario V6000 I just bought a Netgear N150 wireless USB adapter I cant get it to work are there any drivers made already. I have tried searching but I am confused. I have the cd but Ndiswrapper says the driver is already installed but it is obviously not. when I initially attempted to run autorun the install shield wizard would not load so I figure the installation is incomplete.

After the drivers are installed you have to modprobe them for them to work.

Go to terminal, sudo "modprobe ndiswrapper" without quotes, will start the drivers. You will have to enter password!
