When you say 'the wireless quit working', do you mean that the wl driver

I believed it paniced on reboot after installing the new kernel. It was about 2 weeks ago though and I've tried so many things that I can't recall exactly.

These messages, together with the fact that neither of the other drivers
(wl or the Windows driver) work, suggest to me that there has been a
hardware failure.  It may just have coincided with the earlier kernel

Hmmm... it sure would be quite the coincidence. I'll see if I can get Windoz on it and see if the hardware is working there. Thanks for the reply. I'll post an update.
