Hi

If it was via ethernet, then it would work, but not via wifi.

I know if I choose to load the full blown live cd, and got onto the desktop, I could configure the wifi and then run the installer, but when you boot the cd you get asked if you want to run the installer, or boot to the live cd. 

I chose the installer and therefore didn't get any of the network-manager tools to configure the network. 

It just seems slightly strange that it didn't prompt to configure the network during the installer. If it did this, the user could configure their installation to connect to their encrypted wifi, download the 3rd party packages automatically and not have to worry about setting the network up again after the installation.

If you're using WIFI you need to connect at the top using the wireless icon assuming its detected your card. If its ethernet then it "should" have detected it and tried to obtain a DHCP address. Which method are you using?

Hi,

Could you connect it via Ethernet cable and install anything that you want to and update/install the wireless drivers (I'm guessing that's how you're connecting to the Internet)?
