Bug#739310: cdrom: Fails to connect to network

Package: cdrom
Severity: important
Tags: d-i

Dear Maintainer,

I was unable to connect to any network using recent installers. I kept
getting alerts about DHCP not working. This, of course, made the net
install completely unusable. And the full install failed to connect as well,
including after the installation was finished. I wasn't able to configure
anything after install, though I admit my knowledge on the relevant programs is
very limited.

I am using a Realtek network card (Realtek 8111E) integrated into my motherboard
(Gigabyte GA-990GXA-UD3). The installer said non-free firmware was required to
use this, but this has not been so in the past. I was able to get around my
problems by using an old 32-bit installer of Wheezy 7.0 that I found lying
around on a disc. I was able to connect to my network just fine with that.
