For anyone else who is suffering this same problem, here's the apple thread on the topic.

It's an interesting issue. I only ever have the kernel panics when I'm at university where they utilize Cisco Aironet 1200 series access points.

Turn the AirPort off, and it's as good as gold. Dodgy ass third party crap chipset and drivers.:mad:

PS. as a side-note, I have the 802.11n update installed. So who knows what affect that's having.

Same thing used to happen with my MacBook and a Netcomm 802.11g router. My iBook has no issues with the same router.
In the end, I went back to my linksys, and the problem went away

I'd send the reports reports into Apple if you're prompted after a reboot. Would help them figure things out.

Have done. :)

It's happened over 20 times now, so they'd have tons of food for thought.
