Ndiswrapper 1.4 seems to be the solution but unfortunately the system freezes

Hmm, strange. I've used my ipn2220 card on amd64 with ndiswrapper release candidates without any problem...

kernel is 2.6.12-rc10 gentoo
gcc (GCC) 3.4.3 20041125 (Gentoo 3.4.3-r1, ssp-3.4.3-0, pie-8.7.7)
 
Could you pls. post some more info? If the system freezes, could you try to load ndiswrapper from console and see if there is any error message? And if it is, could you write down (in the worst case on the paper) the messages and post it... . It would help a lot. And don't forget to compile ndiswrapper with DEBUG=5 option - it should be verbose enough to see what's the problem.
Generally, there is a wiki page where everything about possible bug reporting is written: http://ndiswrapper.sourceforge.net/mediawiki/index.php/Bugs
It should contain enough info about how to catch the last messages... .

old versions of ndiswrapper work (= do not freeze my system) but as everybody
knows my card won't.
 
I know that at least ndiswrapper 1.4-rcX worked without problems; It was quite stable even with higher network load.

Tell me what you need (no dmesg output) and I'll tell you
 
I hope it will help at least a bit... .
