I just installed Debian Jessie yesterday, was having issues with my multi-monitor setup and so upgraded the 3.x kernel to
linux-generic-4.6. Now, for whatever reason, my
iwlwifi driver has stopped working. Luckily I have a USB network card so I am not internet-less, but I can't seem to get the built in card working which is pretty frustrating.
This is the output of

lspci -nn | grep Wireless:

I have uninstalled and reinstalled
iwlwifi multiple times from the normal debian repo's as well as from backports.
Let me know if there is anything else you need.
