Ethernet doesn't work either! After the
firmware issue is brought up, the DHCP autoconf
fails. You are saying this isn't related to the
missing firmware?

If the firmware is only for WiFi, then it is
a whole other issue because I don't care
about WiFi!

Why doesn't Ethernet (DHCP autoconf) work?

I erroneously assumed you were installing over wireless because
firmware for a wireless chip was asked for. Very silly of me.
I have a feeling most of us had the same assumption. Why the installer did not configure a wired connection is beyond me, I'm out..
