Internet access is absent whichever method, CD, DVD or netinst.iso, is
used with d-i. So the choice comes down to how bare/basic an initial
install has to be prior to adding further packages when connectivity is
available. If a full, working desktop is a requirement I'd be be looking
at a Debian Live iso rather than CD-1 or DVD-1.
