Hi there, I encountered the same problem, and after trying many different driver versions I finally found that the 18.104.22.168 driver works for me. No more interrupted downloads and freeze-ups!
I registered just to share the solution with you, hope it helps!

Read my prior postings. I already tried the 6300 route and it does not make a difference. In fact, it only made it worse.
My solution: 6200 with 22.214.171.124 driver.
To get rid of that pesky "007-wifi card not compatible..." blue screen:
1. unplug all (ports, power plug, and battery)
2. wait a few and then put in battery only and boot up
3. Once booted, you can plug in power and other ports.

Just checking in to let eveyone know where I got to with the WiFi crashes...
Tried a 6300 could not get it 2 boot so installed a modded bios which worked ok for a few days then started getting the freeze ups again with the WiFi enabled, so no real fix with the 6300..
Reverted back to supported BIOS, removed MiniPCI WiFi card(s) all together and now just using NanoUSB WifI adaptor. Not one crash in 6 weeks. All GOOD.
Obviously not the best option but in terms of stability its the best i've come up with.

Turns out that my Windows update pushed a driver upgrade to the computer. I rolled back the driver to 126.96.36.199 (I downloaded from HP) and the problems seem to have stopped again.
So, it really does appear that this is a driver specific issue. I'm baffled as to why Intel would put out multiple later iterations of the driver that cause the thing to lock up. One would normally expect updates to IMPROVE performance not kill it. Be that as it may, I kept the install files for this driver version so any time an update gets pushed out that stops it from working, I'll just roll it back again.
