[Mageia-discuss] Network connection at install time

I note from the latest posts that some people have unreliable
connections to the internet at install time.  Now in my 14 years of
installing mandrake, mandriva, mageia the web has never been available
during installation.  For some of those years it was dialup and in
later installs the network adapter was probably only supported under
windows.  However, for the last five or six installs there has been
native support but the attempt to connect at the end of the install
has always failed.  On booting the new system the network comes up

Is this an area worth investigating?  It does not really bother me but
newcomers might have their confidence shaken at this point.
