Bug#613564: [Debian 6] Installation hangs during network hardware probing
Installation of newest stable debian 6 hangs. Expert installation
helps to determine that it hangs during detection of network adapter.
The problem was caused by a Trendnet TEW-423PI pci wifi adapter
(http://fotki.yandex.ru/users/bmrd/view/349933/), known as 01:03.0
Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL-8185 IEEE
802.11a/b/g Wireless LAN Controller (rev 20)
I can query for additional info about the adapter, if required.
The installation just hangs in the very beginning. I tried enabling
and disabling the onboard ethernet controller, but no change.
I have an ASRock p4i65 motherboard (S478, Intel Celeron 1.7) and the
only PCI card in it is the wifi card.
