either by filing it against live-helper; or by sending a mail to the
mailinglist (debian-live@lists.debian.org).

someone already reported this (it's a problem with syslinux), but i have
almost no to no hope that this will get fixed; don't have access to
macbook hardware.

in order to use wifi, you need the necessary firmware (firmware-iwlwifi
in your case). this firmware is not free, and it's not in debian, it's
in non-free.

since the official debian-live cds do not contain anything but packages
from main, wifi with that card doesn't work out of the box. yes, that is
disappointing, however, please read what i wrote here about the
situation (the paragraph starting with 'this is not a bug, this is debian'):
