Linux Mint - USB to Serial Adpapter

Hello,

I'm making an attempt to migrate my laptop strictly to linux. However, I have a USB to serial adapter "FTDIBUS\COMPORT&VID_0403&PID_6001" which I regularly use to console into various hardware routers, switches and ect. I've attempted several online guide with no luck. Any help getting this to work would be greatly appreciated.

Linux Mint 14 64-bit

Thanks in advance!

I tried:

sudo mknod /dev/ttyUSB0 c 188 0
sudo mknod /dev/ttyUSB1 c 188 1
sudo mknod /dev/ttyUSB2 c 188 2
sudo mknod /dev/ttyUSB3 c 188 3

Then tried connecting putty to /dev/ttyUSB0 as well as /dev/usb/ttyUSB0 with no avail. Also,

dmesg | grep tty
