I'm trying to configure wifi on my new laptop

lspci -k:
03:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation Wireless 3160 (rev 93)
Subsystem: Intel Corporation Dual Band Wireless AC 3160

thing is If I use the livecd to boot, wireless is detected and the iwlwifi driver is used, which I have compiled in my kernel
localhost ~ # modprobe -r iwlwifi
modprobe: FATAL: Module iwlwifi is builtin.

localhost ~ # ifconfig -a

localhost ~ # rfkill list

here's my kernel config:

solved by modularizing the iwlwifi module instead of building it in
