https://cdimage.debian.org/debian-cd/current/amd64/iso-cd/debian-11.5.0-amd64-netinst.iso - is a CD image without firmware. Note the path - iso-cd indicates it
is a CD sized image.

Here's the corresponding image with included non-free firmware which you may
need for WiFi.

First image is directly available on the web as the first link. Second is noted
from the bottom of that download link. As it happens, for the next major
release of Debian, we're likely to release an image containing firmware
by default.

Torrent link is here: https://cdimage.debian.org/cdimage/unofficial/non-free/cd-including-firmware/current/amd64/bt-cd/firmware-11.5.0-amd64-netinst.iso.torrent

That's directly from https://cdimage.debian.org/cdimage/unofficial/non-free/cd-including-firmware/current/amd64/ - which is the directory above.

"Debian firmware torrent" into your favourite search engine will find you
the first three links. One to a live CD including firmware, one to how to
download Debian CD images and the third to the link I've given above.

Do you Google, bro?

With every good wish, as ever,
