As far as I know, only root can add modules to the kernel - normal users cannot. Otherwise, there is a security risk of malicious code being run. Regardless, modprobe is a better choice for starting modules.

Try running a search through /lib/modules to see whether the module is there. If it is, try modprobe modulename
