You need to upload the firware that suits your kernel - you either got older
or newer firmware. I won't expect it to work, or at least not in 10G
If you have custom kernel, it would explain the pain. try the native debian
kernel with the native firmware - I don't know if such is available, but if
card is supported it should be.
I prefer using custom kernel and download firmware from the support sites.
