The issue with wireless networking cards is they require some kernel
level stuff to initialize the card. Thus, they can't be used for the
boot process. LTSP can be used if a small boot kernel is on the system
that can drive the card and then the system just gets it's X-windows
stuff over the network (a fatter client than diskless, no OS using PXE
boot).

So far, every RealTek networking device I have seen work with Linux.
They usually don't perform above average but the work.

Note: Wireless bandwidth is limited. LTSP can be bandwidth intensive. It
will be very slow with more than a small few running wireless.
