Questions about hardware,drivers and peripherals

I run the stock kernel on my 32 bit KDE install. This is 22.214.171.124.36 To get support for my RT5370 wireless USB (claimed by rt2800usb) I need to get the linux-backports-modules-cw-3.3-precise-generic install. However this will prompt to install kernel 126.96.36.199 as the latest version of the precise package is 188.8.131.52. Synaptic by default installs the latest version of a package. I'd prefer to stick to the stock kernel for now so I want to know how to get the precise package for my kernel install. I tried to install the only 184.108.40.206 backports package and that is linux-backports-modules-cw-3.3-220.127.116.11-generic. The latest version is 3.2.0-23.6 When I do this I get complaints when I try to start the rt2800usb module about version mismatch. So I'm guessing the backports doesn't match my kernel version. Am I forced to upgrade my kernel?
