This is likely your problem:

Jul 24 22:44:48 cow kernel: ndiswrapper (wrap_ndis_worker:1147): wlan0 is being reset
Jul 24 22:45:36 cow last message repeated 3 times
Jul 24 22:46:46 cow last message repeated 3 times
Jul 24 22:47:29 cow NetworkManager: <information>	wlan0: link timed out. 

Seems like the card/driver is deciding to reset itself, which of course
makes NetworkManager think the link is lost, which by definition it is.
What type of card is this?
