Netgear WNA1100 not working

A few days ago my USB wireless adapter (WNA1100) stopped working. At first I thought it was a driver issue, but soon after I found out that the driver for that USB adapter (ath9k_htc) was already built in the kernel, so I tried downgrading the kernel (linux) to the version from a week ago (5.7.2), but the issue still remains.
I tried reinstalling arch on my system, and the live version actually recognized the wireless adapter and got it to work. After the install, however, the adapter stopped working again (I also tried Void, Solus and Fedora, but still: the adapter was recognized on the live os, but stopped working after the install).

A few commands that might get some useful info (edited so that you can see only the useful part):
- lsusb:

Bus 005 Device 115: ID 0846:9030 NetGear, Inc. WNA1100 Wireless-N 150 [Atheros AR9271] 

- lsmod:

ath9k_common           40960  1 ath9k_htc
ath9k_hw              520192  2 ath9k_htc,ath9k_common
ath                    36864  3 ath9k_htc,ath9k_common,ath9k_hw
mac80211             1040384  5 ath9k_htc,iwlmvm,rt2x00lib,rt2x00usb,ath9k_hw
cfg80211              897024  7 ath9k_htc,ath9k_common,iwlmvm,rt2x00lib,ath,iwlwifi,mac80211

- dmesg:

Thank you in advance for your patience

Re: Netgear WNA1100 not working

Welcome to the forums.  As a sanity check, what are the output of uname -a and of pacman -Q linux   ?
After you unplug and replug the device, what additions are made to the journal?

Edit:  No, it is disconnecting and reconnecting continuously,  I am still curious about the kernel versions comparison.
