Wireless not working/Resolved

Wireless not working/Resolved

I have elive-compiz installed on my Acer 8930G and have managed to solve all issues debian or elive specific except the wifi.
Ndiswrapper does not work with the Intel 5100 wlan chips and the default kernel on elive-compiz dows not have the iwlagn module installed. However even when I try and install a new kernel elive insists on using the same 2.26.8 kernal which does not work. I have followed all the installation instructions for installing the drivers but as long as iwlagn is not installed or run or found by the kernel the card will not work.

Is there a way to fix this problem? Is there a way to install the wlagn module into kernel 2.26.8 or force the booting of a different kernel?

thank you
