This is the same issue as bug#701622, I'm carrying forward the same decision to accept this issue as a NTH. rather than continuing to track the change in the previous bug.
Well, I am not familiar with release criteria, but not working network equals to unable to install the system (unless I go for the full DVD, of course). Wired network is also broken, described in the bug 703289.
Moreover, if I get this right, if this hits F15 final it is over - afaik isos are never updated after the release.
Wireless networking during installation is not a release criteria. Either way, if a fix is available in time, it will be included in Fedora 15.
lorax-0.4.6-1.fc15 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 15.

A custom-built boot.iso is available for you to verify whether this issue is resolved.
Can you download and boot the boot-x86_64.iso (if needed, a 32bit image will be arriving shortly) image and provide test feedback?
This file seems corrupted:

Your sha256sum is correct, the sha'sums were out of date. I've updated that file now.
It works using iso provided by jlaska transferred to a USB stick using livecd-iso-to-disk (plain dd does not result in a working bootable USB for some reason).
Moving to VERIFIED based on feedback in comment#17, thanks Julian and Martin!
