You can get wireless working on every Replicant supported device, (if you don't mind using proprietary wi-fi drivers):

I don't want to explain exactly how you could "install" that binary files, because it's not recommended by the Replicant project to use proprietary software in any way. But if you like to do so, just continue reading here: http://code.paulk.fr/article16/missing-proprietary-firmwares-in-android-systems (and especially consider the comments)...

Wi-Fi drivers are free for all supported Replicant devices. However, they all require a non-free firmware (that is run on the Wi-Fi chip itself, not on the main CPU). Since those have to be shipped with the system, we do not include them in Replicant (see http://www.replicant.us/about.php#shipping-proprietary-components ).

However, if you decide to install proprietary firmwares, which is not advised by Replicant, the system will load those files.
