Wireless problem with Debian Squeeze

I just have installed debian squeeze beta2 x64 on my laptop but it doesn't recognize my wireless card Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 3945 ABG. Is there generic drivers for wireless cards for Debian ?

You need to install the firmware-iwlwifi package. And possibly the firmware-linux-nonfree package.
