iwlwifi-4965-2.ucode firmware file req failed

This problem started to occur to me while moving to kernel

The problem is that the file doesn't exits. I was able to fix it by downloading the latest image (iwlwifi-4965-ucode- from Intel Linux Wireless. Once downloaded and unpacked copy iwlwifi-4965-2.ucode to /lib/firmware/

$ wget

$ tar xzvf iwlwifi-4965-ucode-

$ cp iwlwifi-4965-ucode- /lib/firmware/

This was performed on a Lenovo R61 running Debian.
