    Interesting note on the software/hardware debate.

    I just purchased a replacement MacBookPro for an aging Powerbook. The unit is less than 2 weeks old.

    AS was sitting here installing the Xcode 2.x it KPed. At the same time, my wife's MB KPed. It was (less than) interesting to watch the two machines have the gray curtain drop. My machine was running 10.6 (fresh install) hers was running 10.7.

    So, while eliminating the 108 wireless stuff has cut down the KPs, its not the fix as both she and i are still seeing them... Man am i missing the stability of the Powerbook

    Looks like G5updated to 10.4.7 is seeing simular issue. I have seen the following crash twice. Once with wireless on, but not associated, and now with wireless off:

    Turned off wireless... no Kernel Panics since. The correlation seems to be pretty well confirmed at this point. Where's the fix!? Or would Apple rather I send back the whole machine?

    i agree with you i have had now 3 logic boards replaced (well this is the third one now, both 1 and 2 were DOA), and I am happy to report no more kernel panick attacks whether i am using wireless or not at the moment ( it's been 2 weeks now).

    Spoke with a tier 2 Apple Tech Support agent today, who told me that the Apple engineers are currently working on a fix, which is probably to be released within 1-2 weeks.

    i hope, from the bottom of my heart, that you are correct and apple actually can fix this horrible problem with a download.

    Since the first tier 2 agent I spoke with didn't call me back last week, I called them back. The other guy i spoke with confirmed that the fix should be ready for release very soon!

    Perhaps it will be a part of the 10.4.8 update? Anyway, if Apple doesn't have a fix within two weeks, I will of course demand a new computer - it doesn't matter to me if it's a problem with the software or hardware. The bottom line is, that I can't use wireless with Tiger, and that's just not good enough. I am running XP now, because I have to use wireless network.

    Anyway, two guys have been speaking with the engineers, saying the fix will be released soon, so I think they are close.

    To: qmnonic,

    Please, keep us updated on your status and let us know if the kernel panics return.

    My mbp 17 (week 19) didn't start acting up with KP's until about one month after I bought it in May. Besides the random kernel panics, I've also had a couple crashes using MS Word and Entourage 2004. I can't say whether it's related or not. After getting the latest updates for MS Office, those programs seem to be working better.

    I was thinking my KP problem may have something to do with the heatsink or heat sensor problems others have been complaining about, because mine usually doesn't crash till it's been on for several hours. Although, the last crash happened within five minutes of turning it on. But I can't rule out the heatsink problem yet because I had had the computer running all day on our LAN at work and the sort time it was off during transit home may not long enough for the heatsink to contract again - that is if it's involved at all.

    Here's the log for the last one, except for slight variation in the codes, it is almost identical to the rest I've had. The backtrace to "AirPortAtheros5424" is the same in all unless it has another kp opon restart, as it did this time.

    Sure hope your logic board does the trick for you, I bought this mbp for a business trip to the States on the 30th of this month maybe I'll be able to order the logic board while I'm back there.

    I here Apple has manufactured new parts to solve the problem:

    So I thought it was just me, and took my machine to the Apple Store a few days ago. Today, I was at the Future of Web Apps Summit, and watched every MacBook and MacBook Pro connected to the wireless network kernel panic repeatdely. We're talking more than 100 MacBook and MacBook Pros, all kernel panicing as soon as an attempt was made to connect to the wireless network. My experience was more sever in that in happened regularly on my home network, but this was like a virus moving from machine to machine... it was pretty surreal.

    My MPB panicked on the day I picked it up - panic triggere by attemtp to download software updates. I have been reading all the discussions and tried to piece together possible cause. This is my panic log, exactly the same as everyone else's.

    This moring, for the first time ever, I was able to download Quick Player, Front Row and Itunes updates - in their entirety without a crash - but not before 4 crashes and my attempt to narrow the problem down by elimination.
    1. I deleted Airport Radar/Traffic control widgets from all computers on this network. My Airport settings are WEP 128 - set to both b/g compatible.
    2. I ran Airport Assistant again - reinforcing settings and resetting Base Station.
    3. I have been monitoring connection bars and yes the do disappear occasional but I sense this is the base catchin up with download volume and then kicking back in and resuming download. If the bars disappear for too long the network connection dies.
    4. I switched off the TELEVSION and MOBILE PHONE.
    5. I disabled Nortons Antivirus on the Desktop (Mac Mini) which joins this network.

    My gut feeling is that the Airport Base is not keeping up with MBP and that it is sensitive to interference - I have enabled Internet Interference (using tool bar Airport) but have not ticked this box in Wireless Connection Options in Airport Admin Utility.

    So only thing I have not done is remove dental fillings.

    This is the first time I have succeeded in completing downloads without KP
    but - I have yet to turn on TV and Mobile phone...I will continue to work without turning these on and see how it goes - so far so good.
    I believe, too, this is a software fix and have not intention of submitting MBP for surgery to find they remove the wrong leg. (all hardware tests okay)
    There is NOTHING else wrong with my new child...I am holding off in the hope Apple updates fix Wireless KP.
    Hope this helps someone.
