NetGear N150 not working with CentOS 6


I am trying to connect a NetGear N150 wireles USB adaptor to my desktop system running CentOS 6. HAL is detecting the USB device but somehow the necessary drivers like ath9k and mac80211 are not loaded. I know that ath9k_htc should be the one to be used but I cannot be bothered yet.

I would very much appreciate some pointers on how to proceed. I am stuck and not too experienced

Thanks in advance.

Some output of modprobe -l


Output uname -rv

2.6.32-71.29.1.el6.i686 #1 SMP Mon Jun 27 18:07:00 BST 2011

Please follow for more details. The driver is available in a later version of the Linux kernel I was using while posting this thread.
