    For some reason my MBP has been crashing twice a day. The problem seems to come from my airport card... I have the SR 15" MBP. I'm running Leopard. The only programs that are open are Firefox and Adium and sometimes Azureus. Can anyone come up with a solution to fix it?

    Here is the log:

    Have you taken advantage of Apples free technical support since they may be able to narrow the cause down rather than the speculation you'll receive here.

    Azureus on Leopard has problems with the MBP Airport driver, so it might be that. Try not using Azureus for a while and see if the KP happens again...

    That statement blatantly does not make sense, since Azureus does not interface with the network driver directly.

    Citation please.

    Call AppleCare; they'll be able to give you a much better idea based off of those logs that you posted than (most) people here. In the end, you'll probably have to end up calling them anyways, so might as well save some time.

    Google "leopard azureus kernel panic" and see what shows up. It's a common problem.

    Fine.

    "Azureus Conflicts with airport driver ( In Core2Duo Macbook Pro 802.11N card) causing kernel panic (works on Aluminum PB G4 Airport Extreme, maybe an 802.11N issue?)"

    Do you honestly think I would blurt this out if I hadn't read it somewhere? Because then I see your point.

    Well, it doesn't mention which version. All versions? a specific version?

    A couple extremely thick headed members here, are still trying to use it and get around the wireless -- don't think they have succeeded.

    Azureus has a "wireless" problem with leopard. If you really must use it, use an ethernet cable. If you still have problems with it wired, disable Little Snitch.

    Of course some people have come across the Leopard hate my N issue, and have had to drop back to BG mixed, so it very well could be an Apple driver issue.

    One way to find out is to install the newest version (it was recently updated) and see if the problem pertains. I for one will wait with installing Leopard until both Azureus and PeerGuardian are confirmed to work. :)
