No, it can't. FreeDOS needs a dedicated DOS packet driver to work.

Again, no.
Besides the fact that there is no available packet driver for any WiFi cards, 
I do not think there is currently a way to use an USB network card in 

If your target is to connect FreeDOS via WiFi, you will probably have to buy a 
WiFi access-point, which will barely "translates" WiFi to classic, wired 
ethernet. Then, you will be able to connect FreeDOS to that access-point 
using any supported network card.
If you want simply make a bridge between a WiFi network and a wired network, 
then FreeDOS will not be of any value to you. Any access-point will do that 
(optionally, you can try to make it with a Linux distro, but I guess you will 
have to buy a PCI WiFi card then, as USB WiFi network cards have very poor 
support... or use the Linux ndiswrapper).
