There are various ways to set up networking in qemu so that you can
access the outside world. This can be physically through wifi or
otherwise - since qemu is just a userspace program it can't know what
type of connection there is on the host.

Unfortunately none of the various ways to set up qemu networking is
ideal, so you should probably try them and see what works for you.

There's been done initial work on emulating the Atheros WiFi card in
qemu-neo1973 (svn) but it's not complete yet.
