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.

Contact me in private email if you're interested.
The issues are:
1. Need the latest Intel firmware (iwlwifi-6000g2b-18.104.22.168)
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.
