ndiswrapper drops connection after kernel update

I have an AMD athlon running ubuntu w kernel k7-188.8.131.52, and I use
ndiswrapper 1.2 to connect my alcatel speedtouch 120g to the wireless
access point. Mostly without problems when I used the 386 kernel, but
after updating to 686 and later to k7 the connection works at boot-up
but dies after some time (5-20 minutes). The nasty thing is that the
keyboard is also disabled when this happens, so I can hardly do anything
and have to reboot. The shutdown itself doesnt finish either, I have to
use the reset button.
I fear I'm doing something very wrong, such as installing the wrong
kernel, but would ubuntu boot at all then?
What can I do? I'm writing this teeth-gnashingly using windows, so
please help me.
