the assumptions when you use the Live-CD to install...

that you are using dhcp, that you are installing a workstation, not a
server and thus it installs and configures NetworkManager.

If you would just download the full DVD and install from that, you would
save yourself a headache because it would match your expectations.

Given the amount of installations that you seem to do, it almost makes
sense for you to just mirror the entire 'Everything' and 'updates' and
install via NFS or HTTP from your own mirror. I personally use 'yam'
which is Dag Wieer's brilliant tool for creating mirrors of various
repo's with fsync.
