Could you please stop mangling all your problems into this topic? It started as:

    "How can we add support for wireless acess points which need authentication
    via browser to install images"

deviated to

    "How to support wireless NICs" in boot.iso"

and now it's more like

    "Help! Please help me get my hardware working after a default install".

This won't help anyone and will only lower chances, that developers
will look into your problem(s). Please make up your mind what you want,
stop the noise and learn to write proper bugreports.
