BeOS & Derivatives Michael Lotz, of Tracker.NewFS, SVG, Haiku USB, Qemu, and countless other cool-things-to-have fame has checked in Haiku's first wireless network driver, for the Intel Pro Wireless 2100. This chipset, which inhabits nearly all early Centrino-badged devices, is amongst the more common wireless hardware found in recent computers. It works on r5 as well.

I think the issue would be more of people not being able to install it on the PCs becoz they are missing some core drivers to do the install the first place. For example your system requires a certain kind of IDE or SCSI driver not included in the OS release. The driver is available but you will need to be able to boot up the system to install which you can't because your IDE/SCSI chipset is not supported. This chicken and egg situation would be the most frustrating.
