I may have misunderstood you earlier. You have ethernet and wireless on
the machine. Does the ethernet port work?

The lspci command gives what the kernel has detected, not what the
installer has found when it runs the detecting the network hardware
option. It looks like d-i is misbehaving and does not pick up on the
wireless interface.

In a console

   cat /var/log/syslog | grep wlan
