Hello, i have a wireless card

(lspci -nn)
Code:
03:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Intel Corporation Centrino Advanced-N 6205 [Taylor Peak] [8086:0085] (rev 34)


from Thinkpad X230

and it appeared as wlan0 after i built iwlwifi module and installed linux-firmware package (which had needed iwlwifi-6000g2a-5.ucode microcode).

The problem is that iwconfig reports "no wireless extentions" on this wlan0 interface.

I have tried different kernels:

* 3.0.35
* 3.7.1
* 3.8.2
* and even 3.9.0-rc2 (from torvalds' linux.git) with pulled in linville's wireless-testing.git changeset

each with iwlwifi as module and as compiled-in-kernel, but no luck. "no wireless extentions".

Any hints on this card?

Many thanks! Enabling CONFIG_CFG80211_WEXT solved my issue.
