Why not grab the DVD and install from there.  You have every package on
the DVD and you don't even need a network at all to do the install.

Most standard wireless cards are detected and do work, but if it is a
one time install, the DVD is a sure bet.

It is also great to have the DVD already downloaded and not have to do
it from the client's site.
