I confirm that module from comment 85 works for me.

> I don't know the specific trigger but in my testing with intrepid over the last few weeks I have found a large amount of kernel panics when connected to my 802.11n router with an intel 4965 card. This issue does not at all appear when I use an 802.11b/g network which is what I use exclusively at my university (student during the day). At one point my system had 4 kernel panics in 2 hours all while using network intensive applications (apt, firefox, terminal server client).
> I've tried the REISUB magic keys several times but its a completely dead machine. However, I have found something that works and I think it should be added to the official repository, the Oct-1-2008 compat-wireless iwlagn module fixes the kernel panic issue. I've left my machine on for an extended period of time in the same conditions that used to kernel panic before and so far all is good. I understand we are nearing the end of the road and only major showstoppers should be included for release but I feel this warrants such consideration.
