I spent half an hour configuring partitioning and custom package
selection and tabooing after a perfectly normal HTTP startup from
Grub with source
http://mirrors.us.kernel.org/opensuse/distribution/leap/42.1-Current/repo/oss/
on kernel cmdline. Then when clicking to proceed after finishing
selection, "Cannot access installation media". Retries for 20+
minutes are changing nothing, while this PC has no problem
accessing the very same URL. This can't be right. Can the installer
be kicked somehow to reprobe DNS or something to make it access
what clearly *is* accessible, or does Yesterday's upload to the
mirrors have a broken installer WRT network installation?

So it's not an inaccessible server. It's looking for
branding-openSUSE-42.1-4.1.noarch.rpm when what the mirror has is
42.1-4.2. Can this be worked around without restarting and losing the
time already invested? I yes, how?

Idea how to achieve it is to save in proposal screen autoyast profile
( so before installation start ). Then if this happen start new
installation with this autoyast profile and it should contain all your
manually crafted changes.
