    Post Alternate CD installation possible without internet connection?

    Hello,

    I tried to install Ubuntu 11.10 using the alternate CD (from USB-Stick/unetbootin). Is there a way around entering network information? I access with DSL and as far as I can see the installer doesn't offer pppoe. Or, does another CD image/older version of the alternate feature full disk encryption?

    Thanks in advance!

    Just leave it at automatic (dhcp), it will configure it for dhcp. The connection will not work but the install will continue, it doesn't actually need to detect a working internet connection.

    Once it is installed you will have to create your connection in Network Manager I guess.

    Thanks for the hint! =)

    After it recognizes the network, one's in a dead end, but cancelling the scanning process indeed spares this; saying no to manually configuration then leads further.
