Angry sony vaio pcg-grs615sp

Has anyone managed to get the wireless networking to work on this laptop.
Everything seems to install properly but won't run. I'm getting error messages about missing interupts which I've solved before by a bit of BIOS tweeking but the model has VERY limited BIOS functions available.

Any ideas greatly appreciated

What's the wireless card? If its onboard, what's the output of:

/sbin/lspci -v

with regards to the ethernet controller.
