I believe that any packages marked zd1211 plus firmware are actually for my 
usb wifi antenna, but have you tried them? Also, I seem to recall you wrote 
Intel, so look for any firmware related to that. 

When all else fails, I search for any packages marked network, wifi, wireless, 
firmware, etc., and try them unless apt rejects them. Also, of course, I read 
the descriptions of the packages until something rings a bell. 

Like you said, everything usually just works....
