Bug Description

The amd64+mac Alternate installation CD detects the wireless interface but is unable to use it to get an IP address via DHCP.

The PowerPC alternate CD from the same date detects the wireless network and is able to use it. The installation process for AMD64+mac should be able to detect and use the wireless just like the PPC version does.
