Bug#757861: I can reproduce this issue
i can reproduce this issue with the latest Jessie release. Wifi
hardware is an ipw2200 in this case. During installation I can not
connect to a WPA secured network. I just get into an endless loop
asking for the SSID and key. A connection to an open network works
well. In the installer log i can see the following entries which
might be interesting for this issue:
netcfg: INFO: Network chosen: FOO. Proceeding to connect.
apt-install: Queueing package wpasupplicant for later installation
netcfg: INFO: Couldn't connect to wpasupplicant
dnesg says that the firmware ipw2200-bss.fw has been loaded.
Will there be an update to the installer for Jessie?
