Does the wireless device run on the USB bus internally? Some USB
keyboards which fail when booting will work after the boot is
complete, I believe the advice is to try a standard keyboard for the
boot and then switch.

More likely, the wireless device is on a non-standard proprietary
interface internally, in which case maybe Dell will release the specs
so someone can design a driver.
