installing D-link wireless N 150 USB Adapter on Ferdora 13

I am very new in linux. I need to use a wireless usb adapter. I have a D-link wireless N 150 USB adapter specified for the use in windows. Can it be used in Linux? If yes, can someone guide me through the installing? It would be a great help!

Being short on time, I have found this for you -
Overall, you just need to install the right drivers for your device. That being said though, when you plug it in, can you post the output of the following commands? Thanks!

Hi Josh,

Thanks for the help. I have biological back ground. So I do not have much knowledge about anything in linux. But I am trying to get hold of it.

Here is the output of the commands:

you are aware that fedora 13 is DEAD and unsupported
--- there will NEVER ever be any security updates and NO new software ---
It is past it's End Of Life
please stay current and install fedora 15

also the NEW kernel in 15 might already support your hardware.
