Bug Description

Current version of intel iwlwifi and firmware are pretty old in gutsy kernel and have many bugs. Updating the drivers in the kernel will greatly increase reliability of using intel i3945 & i4965 wireless cards. So increate the driver verion to 0.1.14 or greater as well as updating the 2 firmwares required for both cards.
