modprobe doesn't use the extension, I think you can still do that with
insmod, but modprobe uses a symbol list created by depmod.
There are pretty good man pages for these tools, but I'd guess your issue
is probably firmware, there's a good wiki about the iwlwif did you check
# modprobe iwlwifi.ko
modprobe: FATAL: Module iwlwifi.ko not found in directory
