* See the installation guide
http://www.debian.org/releases/squeeze/i386/ch06s04.html.fr
As long as you follow steps, it's easy to put firmwares on the USB stick.

* http://cdimage.debian.org/cdimage/unofficial/non-free/firmware/wheezy/current/firmware.tar.gz

* You can find the firmware inside
$ dpkg -c firmware-iwlwifi_0.36_all.deb | grep 6000
-rw-r--r-- root/root 679436 2012-06-12 17:13 ./lib/firmware/iwlwifi-6000g2b-6.ucode
-rw-r--r-- root/root 454608 2012-06-12 17:13 ./lib/firmware/iwlwifi-6000-4.ucode
-rw-r--r-- root/root 444128 2012-06-12 17:13 ./lib/firmware/iwlwifi-6000g2a-5.ucode

Or at http://intellinuxwireless.org/?n=Downloads

You cannot find easily find them because of a bug on packages.debian.org, sorry.

For information (from svn://svn.debian.org/kernel/dists/trunk/firmware-nonfree):
-6 = Update Intel Wireless 6030 firmware to version 18.168.6.1 (ABI 6)
-5 = Update Intel Wireless 6025 firmware to version 17.168.5.3

--> Could you try with these files and confirm you can use the wifi ?

The maintainer may modify the wording so that you can find the file easier, in
case one doesn't read doc and don't download firmware.tar.gz...

So downgrading severity.


Best regards.
