Debian cannot find my wifi card

I have just installed Debian 5.0 on my laptop, but it does not detect my wifi card.
My card is an Intel Wifi 5100 and i have read that Debian 5.0 already has drivers for this card...

I use the command iwconfig and i get:

lo no wireless extensions
eth0 no wireless extensions

Intel ipw5xxx/ iwlagn, draft-n wlan:

apt-get install firmware-iwlwifi

firmware-iwlwifi does not cover ipw5xxx yet, please fetch iwlwifi-5000-ucode-*.tar.gz and place it under /lib/firmware/
