It is not the installer's job to test your hardware for you, and networking is not necessarily needed to be brought up on updates - especially if you used preupgrade to do this.
Comment 2 KitchM 2012-10-15 16:03:20 EDT
I don't know what preupgrade is, but I do know this; during the regular installation routine, the user is given an option for configuring the network.  Further, it should be the responsibility of the installer software to make sure that the hardware is there.  Else, why install things like media players, usb drivers, or cd software.  Since there is no hardware configuration options given later, this is absolutely required for an OS to work correctly.
