Bug#334696: installation-reports: [WiFi fail] All 2.6 kernels/NetISOs fail to find/configure WiFi Lucent GOLD card

Package: installation-reports
Version: 2005-10-15
Severity: important

I've used the NetINstall ISOs and noticed that after the change to
kernel 2.6.x all the ISOs have been unable to

- automatically find
- or configure

The standard WiFi card Lucent GOLD. The manual setup does not work
either; the list is presented and I pick the correct card, but the
installed still announces failure.

With previous version of the NetInstall ISOs (2.4 line) the card
is detected and configured automatically.

The installation cannot be proceeded without working network
