FAQ
Hi Jeff,

You can use Alt + F3 or Alt + F4 once you're inside the installer to open a console.
If you disable the wlan0 interface before the network part of the installer you should be ok.

Regards,
Tom

Hi, Bert --

Thanks. :-) Doesn't seem to be an opportunity or way to open a console
before this problem comes up, with netinstall. I just scanned to see if
there might be a kernel parameter for it; doesn't seem to be.

Hi, Folks --

I'm setting up an Acer Aspire 5250 as a Christmas gift, CentOS 6 netinstall
insists on trying to configure wlan0 but I'm using a wired DSL connection,
consequently netinstall fails and only offers the option to Retry.

How can I get it to bypass the wlan0 idea and go straight to eth0...?

Thanks,
Hi,

I believe there is an hardware switch available to shutdown the wirless
on this laptop. If you disable it then no wlan0 can be used.

Hi Jeff,
or try to open a console and disable the WLAN interface (ifconfig wlan0
down), and set the default route to the ETH interface (route add default
eth0).
Cheers, Bert.
