I think Haiku is doing excellently for its 3rd alpha.

However Linux has better support for wifi at the moment. The difference between 2008 and now for me is wifi not working or buggy to working out of the box.

With the recent package management work in Haiku, it would not surprise me if R1 initially lacked driver support but was followed by a set of packages that contained drivers for wifi and other hardware.
