Mac Book Pro Kernel Panics - Wireless

Recommended Posts

I recently (mid November) received a new MacBook Pro and almost immediately began having issues with kernel panics - as many as two or three an hour. An example of the panic is included below:


Sat Dec 2 19:41:21 2006

panic(cpu 0 caller 0x001A3135): Unresolved kernel trap (CPU 0, Type 14=page fault), registers:

Kernel version:

A check of the Apple support forum indicated that wireless related kernel panics have been a problem for a couple of months. I took copies of the panic log to the Apple Store and the machine was sent for repair. I have since received a new machine but it does exactly the same thing.


One thing I have figured out is that I was running a Belkin N1, pre-N router (latest firmware) and if I went back to my old linksys G router the problem disappears. I have been running problem free with the Linksys router for several days. Has anyone else heard of this issue? Any advice would be appreciated
