I'm installing Debian. My problem is: I can't get wireless to work.
So far, I've tested the following two iso images:
With KDE, I can't click on the tab at System settings > Network settings > Network connections > Wireless
With default GNOME of netinst iso, I can't find anything related to wireless at System settings > Network
For both GNOME and KDE, lshw -C network says UNCLAIMED about this wireless card...
This is the transcript of some Arch forum commandline sequence with default GNOME of netinst iso:

As a sanity check, I tested some Ubuntu Live CD. I did have wireless with the Ubuntu Live CD...
Among other things, lspci was saying the following with the Ubuntu Live CD...
