Your statement there actually brings up an interesting point. Since I am
using the kernel:stable repository, is it better to keep it always
updating the kernel from that repository? The reason I had disabled the
repository was that it seemed that kernel updates were coming through
like every week, and perhaps it would be better to just wait. But your
comment makes me think that perhaps it is better to always update, as
long as I am using an advanced kernel?

Those kernels are experimental. There is also a risk in updating them.


The reason I had used the non-standard kernel in the first place was to
get my wireless card working. My thought was that now that it was
working, I would shut off the kernel:stable repository, hold onto the
advanced kernel, and wait until the kernel in the standard repos caught
up to what I was using.

No, Leap 42.2 will not catch up.
And 42.3 comes with kernel 4.4.69

If you have some hardware that doesn't work on 42.2, try 42.3 Beta NOW,
and if it doesn't work, report FAST in bugzilla.
