    Intel WiFi Link 5100 Errata and other documentation needed

    rogercruz

      I have a Lenovo T500 with the WiFi Link 5100 wireless miniPCIe card.  I am running  Ubuntu 10.04 LTS on it and lately, the whole laptop will freeze/hang solid.  Watchdog NMIs do not reset the CPU.  I believe that disabling the C-states in the CPU mitigates the problem (haven't seen it since I set the setting to a maximum state of C0).  I also noticed that taking out this WiFi card prevents the problem from happening... so I am suspecting, just suspecting that there may be an issue with this card and C3 power states.  I would love to get my hands on the errata for this chipset and any other technical (developers) documentation.  How would I go about getting that?
