i just installed Crunchbang 10 to my Laptop in dual boot with win7, my wlan card is a Intel(R) Centrino(R) Wireless-N 2230. I saw i had no wifi, so I tried to install the driver from here, by extracting them and typing:

sudo su
cp iwlwifi-2030-6.ucode /lib/firmware

After that i rebooted and still had no Wifi. Why?

what does dmesg say? (search for something like wl in the output of dmesg) –  umläute Feb 24 '14 at 10:50
Nothing like wl or wifi in output –  Lorenz Feb 24 '14 at 11:22
have you check this ==> superuser.com/questions/564330/… Also have you try to load the module with modprobe iwlwifi –  Kiwy Feb 24 '14 at 11:22
@Kiwy modrporbe gives this output: FATAL: Module iwlwifi not found. And ifconfig/iwconfig about wlan0 : wlan0 No such device –  Lorenz Feb 24 '14 at 11:30
As crunchbang is debian based have you try this: wiki.debian.org/iwlwifi –  Kiwy Feb 24 '14 at 11:33
