There is install media that include non-free Wifi/Network card drivers
AFAIK (you'll need to search around). Also if you include the non-free
section in your /etc/apt/sources.list then you'll get a non-free
firmware package that you can install. Again please search
packages.debian.org for a corresponding firmware package.

This belongs to a Debian support channel though and not to debian-devel.
