Installation without network connection

Is there any way to install Arch Linux without an internet connection?
The reason I am asking is, the only internet access I can get (apart from phones, tablets) is from a USB network adapter.
So when I'm installing Arch Linux, I have no internet at all, but when I'm on an OS and have drivers, my internet is fine.

Re: Installation without network connection

Do you know if there is a live linux distro which supports your adaptor? If so, have you considered installing Arch that way? (i.e. from an "existing" linux installation.)

Or can you provide the drivers needed in the live environment and get an internet connection working for a net install that way?

Re: Installation without network connection

I tried Arch without network for days.........I gave up.

First try to install, Check your driver is loaded with lsusb, iwconfig
if it is loaded you are just fine.
