Well there's your problem... this particular vendor id/product id combination was added to the driver somewhere between 2.6.39 and 3.0.9... (judging by stable compat-wireless releases
So now you have two options:
1. Update the whole kernel. I don't know if there's a ppa with 3.x kernels for Natty (and Mint 11). Maybe someone else may give a hint about that.
2. Update only the wireless subsystem by installing compat-wireless. See this page
for more info. Natty isn't mentioned there though, so you'll have to do a little search in the repositories to find out the exact package name. I haven't tested this.
