Im installing Debian testing version wheezy on my Asus X53Sc with Intel Centrino Wireless-N 100. Im having a problem with my wifi connection. When I try to connect to internet with the wireless connection, an error occurs:

Possible missing firmware /lib/firmware/rtl_nic/rtl8105e-1.fw for module r8169.

I installed successfully the iwlwifi-100-5.ucode, but now I have this error.

Any ideas or suggestions to resolve the problem ?

It is most likely in the firmware-realtek package.

Here is the detail

Is it listed if you do

dpkg --get-selections *firmware*

If not, you can apt-get install firmware-realtek
