I tested on the graphical installer and on the old installer. Both network adapters were recognized, and seem to be ok ( I tried ethernet and wifi).
The problem appears on the step "Configure package manager" were I am asked "Do you want to use a network mirror". When choosing "yes", I am sent back to the menu were I can pick an installation-step ... without any error-message.
When picking the next step( choose packages to install), I am asked again to pick a mirror ... so only option to procceed is to say: "Dont use a mirror" ... I would at least like to see some error-message which tells me why the installer fails to use a network-mirror.

When using the debian-jessie installer CD (v4.5) the step "using network mirror" works fine .. however I got stuck later :X
