  3) What is expected to happen with my Dell Studio 1558 is that when
  using wifi hotspots away from home, it works without problem.

  4) What happens instead is that the the system never makes a connection, and there is a crash in syslog:

  The system is resuming after suspend. However, I have seen similar
  crashes after simply powering on, and in more than one hot spot.
