You might be able to test it all from the install CD. Once you've begun the
install alt+F2 (sometimes ctl+alt+F2) will give you a shell. Also, setting
up the network should tell you if the wireless works.  (Though, for
example, in an F31 install, wireless worked during installation, but after
first boot, I had to connect through ethernet and download the drivers, but
at least you should be able to see if it works during installation. 

Depending upon what you choose to install when you pick software, you may
have to download some drivers after install.

Hope this is of some use. If not, apologies.
