Recovery - Desperate

Forums: 

All,

I know most sites do not like you posting from other sites/threads, but trying desperately to recover. Wrote up my issues at:

"linux.org/threads/laptop-recovery.5829"

and

"linux.org/threads/new-dt-problems.5863"

Was making headway, when I sent in latest reply and got message that I'm only allowed 8 posts and have exceeded by allotment.

The resonse I was posting was:

***********************************************
Rescue mode is asking for me to load file:

iwlwifi-100-6.ucode

from flash.

However searching found this message:

http://www.spinics.net/lists/linux-wireless/msg88957.html

and therefore only downloadable version at:

http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Drivers/iwlwifi/?n=Downloads

is:

iwlwifi-100-5.ucode

How do I resolve this? Will this older version do?

Cheers!
OMR

Hope someone here has answers for me so I can work this all out.
