I like this variant most. Thanks for the suggestion Joey. I suggest to
drop "name" and to just say "the installation" process:

Select the wireless network (ESSID) to use during the
installation process.

While it's technically more correct that you select the name
wpasupplicant will use, I think people will think of it as the wireless
network they want to connect to. "the installation process" sounds
better to me, but I'm not a native speaker. Comments?
