Yes, I do. I am running OpenWrt on it, though.

There isn't anything Debian specific, I think. What exactly are you
trying to do and what did you try? The only mildly frustrating thing to
configure is WPA. If you are not the console type of guy you might want
to install wicd (which replaces Network Manager) which gives you a nice
GUI to set up your Debian system.

Oh, and with wireless it is generally a good idea to try it first
without any encryption and if that works, turn it on.

I like my Toyota RAV4 because of the commanding view of the traffic
