Bug#835993: 8.5 installer DHCP problem

----- information that I got from Kaarnijoki -----

Yes. With same steel and plastic. System has since been upgraded to
8.5, but the original installer was 8.1 and was able to configure the
network. Funnily enough, the 8.5 USB live installer can configure the
network too when using it as a live distro. Problem only occurs when I
try to use the installer.

Yes, We are

00:19.0 0200: 8086:10de (rev 02)

> * Shows `modinfo e1000e` numbers of `lspci -n -s 00:19.0`?

modinfo e1000e gives large output that looks similar to previous
output from installed system. I was not able to copy and paste it from
installer. I wrote down these other outputs, which were identical to
ones I got from live system (uname -a and lspci -n -s 00:19.0)

Now. When I aborted installation I had lost network. The icon in the
top corner still said I was connected, but could not get anything with
browser. After disconnecting and reconnecting with two clicks it was rock
and roll again. Strange? All well before installer starts. No network
with installer. All well after quitting installer and disconnecting and
reconnecting. ???

Anyway. Thank you for your time and effort. I do appreciate.
Use the Force!
