  syscrash on 'Enable Wireless'

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I'm using Ubuntu 12.04.4 LTS with kernel version : Linux anish-pc
  3.5.0-45-generic #68~precise1-Ubuntu SMP Wed Dec 4 16:18:46 UTC 2013
  x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux. My computer is Toshiba Satellite

  Possible package : Linux

  Since I updated to kernel version 3.5.0-46, I've been having problems
  with 'Enable Wireless'.Whenever I turn on 'Enable Wireless', I get a
  syscrash and have to hard reset my laptop. This happens 9/10 times.
  Sometimes it doesn't crash and I can use my computer without any
  problems. Sometimes, it doesn't crash when I enable wireless, but then
  if I turn off the wireless and reset it, it occurs again. This problem
  only exists for kernel version 3.5.0-46 to 3.5.0-48. Previous kernel
  versions do not have this problem and so I'm using kernel version
  3.5.0-45 as it is stable for me.

  This problem first occurred when I updated to kernel version 3.5.0-46.
  When I was updating, I lost my internet connection for 10-15 sec and
  after regaining it, update-manager continued updating. I thought these
  crashes may have been caused because of this and so I waited to new
  kernel updates in the hope that this problem will get solved. But that
  didn't happen for next kernel updates : 3.5.0-47/48.
