I thought this was fixed, but I can reproduce it on two different laptops
- one with realtek and one with iwlwifi. I used the amd64 beta3 netinstall
iso.

Current workaround is this:
When you get to network setup, press alt-F2 to get a console, and run:
  rm /tmp/*

Then press alt-F1 to return to the installer.
Select <Go Back> and re-run Detect network hardware
You should then be able to connect with wireless.
