I have the following controller in a ThinkPad T400s:

03:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 5100 AGN [Shiloh] Network Connection

When I try to connect to a P2P network I get loads and loads of these in dmesg:

[ 622.045142] Registered led device: iwl-phy0::radio
[ 622.045185] Registered led device: iwl-phy0::assoc
[ 622.045226] Registered led device: iwl-phy0::RX
[ 622.045263] Registered led device: iwl-phy0::TX
[ 622.107866] iwlagn 0000:03:00.0: Microcode SW error detected. Restarting 0x2000000.

It takes forever to connect and sometimes fails completely. When it fails, all other bets are off and I have to reboot before I regain usage of the card. reloading the module might work too but i haven't tried that yet.
