Does it look anything like this?
You could try disabling wireless mode n as described in that bug
report and see if it affects the iwl dmesg error.

What indications are there that the nvidia driver isn't working?
(Given that the dmesg error relates to the wireless card.) It may be
something obvious to you (e.g. no graphical login), but we can't know
unless you say.
