Intel Link 5300 (iwlagn) doesn't see any networks


Debian, kernel 2.6.27 from Debian snapshot, laptop ASUS X57-VC (motheboard from M50Vc and I change wifi from atheros 9281 to intel link 5300 (I want 5Ghz N)).

What's wrong:
LED of WiFi doesn't shine and iwlist wlan0 scan doesn't show any network.

My wifi card in my laptop uses the same driver I compiled the 2.6.28 kernel with the kernel-package from debian repository and it works fine so

Have you installed the firmware from http://intellinuxwireless.org/
