Alright, I guess I'll bite the bullet and go ahead with the kernel
update. However, like I mentioned above, I don't have internet access
on my machine (that depends on the wireless working ...), so apt-get
won't work directly. Could you advise which kernel packages I should
download? All that I could find was kernel-image-2.6.18-3-amd64-di,
which means the Debian installer kernel. Is that good enough? Or am I
searching the wrong keywords? And am I to expect a massive dependency
hell upgrading manually like I intend to? Again, very thankful for your
help and patience,
