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
eeprom 93cx6.
"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.
