    You should be able to get the drivers that you need from Intels website: Intel® Wireless WiFi Link drivers for Linux*

    The driver for you card is included in the kernel and loading, as shown above. However, the intel wifi cards need firmware installed as well.

    Download the iwlwifi-5000-ucode-8.24.2.12.tgz package from here. Extract and place the files in /lib/firmware/
