I have one of these "Advanced" controlers in my laptop.  It's up
for grabs for an interested developer after this coming week-end.
I need to de-solder the w.FL connectors to to put them on a supported
non-Intel card to get working wifi.  I will replace the on-card
connectors with u.FL.

    vendor     = 'Intel Corporation'
    device     = 'Centrino Advanced-N 6235'
    class      = network

Contact me in private email if you're interested.

The issues are:
1.  Need the latest Intel firmware (iwlwifi-6000g2b-
    to get anything approaching connectivity.
2.  The 2.4GHz radio will absolutely not use a 20MHz channel if the
    AP will do 40MHz.
3.  40MHz channels don't work.
4.  Random disconnects every 30 minutes or so requiring a wlan0
    destroy/create to recover.
