Ndiswrapper Freezes and Makes Other Things Freeze

Hi, everyone.
I like to read random stuff on this list, but I hardly ever post.
Now, I have a problem.
When I try to install a wireless network driver, the system freezes.
When I open a Konsole window and type "ndiswrapper -l", the Konsole freezes like
the command is doing something, but hours pass and nothing happens.  The same
goes for "lsusb" and "modprobe -r ndiswrapper".  I installed a thing called
ndisgtk, and it freezes as soon as I start it up.
I have a dual-boot system, with 64-bit Windows 7 and 64-bit Kubuntu 10.04, and
everything was fine when I had a wired Internet connection, but now I'm using a
wireless connection that's in another room.  I bought a D-Link DWA 130 for that
purpose, because I remembered somewhere that D-Link adapters play well with
In Windows, it works fine.  In Kubuntu, my system doesn't seem to even recognize
what a wireless network is.
I followed some instructions and installed everything related to wireless
networking and I copied over some files and installed one with Ndiswrapper.  Not
only did it not help, but I think I'm actually worse off than when I started.
Any advice would be appreciated.
Thank you.
