Umh.. the netinst is "just" an installer that picks most of the packages
from the network.  If you want to have the entire distribution on a
medium, you'll have to fetch the full set (as you apparently tried as
well, so I don't understand your netinst request anyway).

All corrupt?  I'm pretty sure something's wrong on your end since you're
the first to report that every CD and DVD image is corrupt.

FWIW: This belongs to debian-user@lists.debian.org.

Could you explain how  you have downloaded the images above and
tried to burn them?  Maybe that explains why you consder them all

It would also be helpful if you'd explain which wireless drivers you
are missing in particular.  Maybe it's those that we cannot ship
anyway due to broken-minded vendors who believe they don't want to
support Free Software and don't release specs or drivers in a
distributable fashion.  Just a guess, though.  We need details.

What is private software?
