Don't know how the new installer handles wifi, but this is more or less
what you should do to get the netgear ma311 working:
apt-get install hostap-utils hostap-source wireless-tools hotplug
echo "alias wlan0 hostap_cs" >/etc/modutils/hostap
Ensure that you have a wlan0 section in /etc/network/interfaces...
iwconfig wlan0 essid foobar
iwconfig wlan0 mode managed
