Solved!

Intel Centrino Advanced N6200 AGN wifi locks up Envy 17 whenever I try to download large files.

I have found a workaround for this issue for anyone to try whose BIOS update did not resolve their problems.

Use the Intel 3.1.1.1 driver (released in 2010).

I have done extensive large file transfers and gaming with this driver and without the BIOS update and haven't had a single laptop hard-lock.

The only irritating behavior is with this driver Intel WIDI will not connect while on 5GHz network because of a restriction in the older driver.

I have posted a guide here to get the stability and an at-least-functioning WIDI.
