Assuming the USB disk is /dev/sdb and it has one partition on
it.

1. Mount the usb drive.
        sudo mount /dev/sdb1 /mnt/
2. Make sure the package is there.
        ls /mnt/
3. Install the package.
        sudo dpkg -i firmware-iwlwifi*.deb
4. Configure the network.
        ... varies by network manager, /etc/network/interfaces,
        wicd...
5. Unmount the usb drive.
        sudo umount /dev/sdb1
