Debian and its clones Writing about Debian is not a simple thing. You know it's the giant that has spawned pretty much every other distro out there. It's almost like a Roman Empire, almost a taboo. Furthermore, it's not a desktop distro per se. It's more sort of a template you use to build your platform. It's also a SOHO server distro, therefore it more fits into the business category, comparable to CentOS and similar.

The summary of the article: The debian installer doesn't work nice with wireless cards which require firmware to be loaded. Also, it doesn't support WPA nor WPA2.

You could have as well read this in the installation guide http://www.debian.org/releases/stable/i386/ch02s01.html.en#nics-wir... and spare yourself this POS blog post altogether.
