Unfortunately not.  Your best bet at the very least would be to try to 
hardwire to an internet connection and use the hardware drivers under 
administration to download and install the drivers and fwcutter 
automatically, but that generally doesn't work unless you have 
downloaded updates.  So either way, your best bet will be a hardwired 
connection.  Sorry.
