Thanks for the report.

I hit a similar situation with a Thinkpad R51. Same WiFi, different
Ethernet NIC. See below. Even with the firmware-ipw2x00 package, I
could not get a connection during installation either.

We seem to have the same version of the Realtek (rev 10).

Did you end up using firmware for the Realtek? There has been some
question on that in the course of this bug.

02:02.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 2200BG [Calexico2] Network Connection (rev 05)
02:08.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation 82801DB PRO/100 VE (MOB) Ethernet Controller (rev 81)

Your report and some other things I have seen lead me to wonder if I am
simply running out of memory on the FIT-PC and d-i is not telling me. A
quick search of two syslogs didn't turn anything up.

Does anybody read signatures any more?
