I unselected "Desktop Environment" during install as I have found it to be bloated, full of software that I do not need at all.

I have done that and since I am still clueless, I asked the questions here.

During installation of Debian, there is no wired and wireless connection. Debian skips auto-configuration of
network, DHCP and DHCPv6.
I install a bare minimum of Debian. During "Selecting software to install", I unselect all the three items offered to me: Desktop Environment, Print Server and Standard System Utilities.
About one or two weeks after installation, I take my laptop computer to my friend's home where there is both wired and wireless connection.
What commands do I have to type at the console, tty1, to enable internet access?
