I've dug out one of my DreamPlug images - it includes drivers, firmware and scripts to set wifi client and server (AP) using Marvell's drivers. 

Procedure is manual - 
Edit /etc/network/interfaces to match your wifi network, choose either server or client, and reboot. 

Drawbacks are - the kernel's 3.0.7, FBX software (FreedomBuddy, etc) is not installed. 

Are you are happy with that?

Copying the 4GB image from home to my site is going to take a day or two due to my terrible upload speed.
