don't know if it can help you, but I have such a wifi controller on my
motherboard (not using it though, and never for a netinstall), here the
lsmod output :
lsmod | grep rtl
rtl8187 44224 0
mac80211 127440 1 rtl8187
eeprom_93cx6 2624 1 rtl8187
cfg80211 31712 2 rtl8187,mac80211
So it seems you need rtl8187, and there's an eeprom reader involved to
"dpkg -S" tells me that all of this is compiled in my kernel, but maybe
not in the installer one ?
It has always worked out of the box.
