    The ndiswrapper method worked great for me. I'm fairly new to Ubuntu and didn't even know about the iwlwifi driver with "n" disabled. Maybe you could post a link that describes this method the best? I Like to help others, but I see I need to obtain more info in this area.

    Mercer: Glade to see you got everything working (no help from me though, sorry).

    Thanks a lot for you too! If updating the kernel didn't work out, I'd try your method next. Thanks for your interest in the issue!
