The installer in Razor-qt, xfce and Lxde asked me to install the firmware for my wlan device. It succeed to get the non-free repos there but does not install the firmware when I press the button to install the modules. Sorry but it's not working better this time.

We need the exact vendor- and product-id of your wifi-chip.
lspci -nn will tell you about it, its the stuff in the [x.x.x.]

Ok, you can't code, but you still might be able to write a bug report for Debian's sake

I have no problem installing the firmware manually and after that wifi is working as it should do.
