What kind of access point do you have at home (the non-working one)?
I had a similar problem with my 3945, and it turned out to be a bad
interaction between the Intel card, the Intel driver, and the AP hardware.
I fixed it by adding the "disable_hw_scan=1" option when the module
loaded. I'm pretty sure Debian uses the modprobe.d style configuration,
so you just need to create a file with contents like this:
$ cat /etc/modprobe.d/network.conf
alias wlan0 iwl3945
options iwl3945 disable_hw_scan=1
and unload/reload the module.
