Do you mean internet access?

And do you mean SQL Server 2014?

I installed SQL Server 2014 without internet access.

If you are asking about .Net - then that is required for some of the SSMS, some of the SQL functions, SMO, CLR, etc functionality. Also consider that .Net plays into the in-memory structures that is new with 2014.

Internet access is not required.
.NET is required, but you can find this on the installation media of Windows Server.
In the most recent versions of Windows Server, this is just a feature you need to enable.

Internet access is not required to install SQL Server. However, you do need to work out what components will also be installed when you do your SQL Server install and where their install media is.

One of the biggest problems is .Net 3, especially with Windows 2012 / 2012 R2. .Net3 cannot just be enabled on W2012, it has to be installed using platform-specific install media.

This link says when the .Net3 install media is ready to run and where it must be downloaded. For W2012 R2 and Windows 8.1, you need to get the install media from the \sxs folder for those operating systems as they use different files to W2012 and Windows 8.

Take a look at and click on the SQL version you want to install. Then scroll down to find the mandatory software you must have to complete the install.
