Intel wifi 4965AGN


I installed SUSE SLES 12 SP1 on a Sony Vaio laptop.

To my surprise, everything is working with the exception of the wireless device.
It is an Intel WIFI 4965 AGN device and it works fine with Windows OS.

I have checked that the proper firmware is in /lib/firmware and dmesg shows
the device is discovered at boot time but no kernel module is loaded.

I see that there is a module iwlwifi in this distro but no iwlegacy.
Do I need this? If so, how do I go about getting this kernel module to load and the wireless device to work?

Should I use an older kernel, say openSUSE 13.1 or 13.2?
