i haven´t done it myself but i think it is possible. Some links you might find useful :

pci-proxy in mol ( pci USE flag) :
http://mac-on-linux.sourceforge.net/wiki/index.php/GeneralConfiguration#PCI_Proxy

using airport extreme in mol ( before we had a native driver - dont know if this still works) :

cheers

I'm no expert on network configuration, so feel free to flame me if this is wrong, but afaik mol uses the tun device to get the network packets out of the virtual machine, masquarades them and then sends them out via the routing table to wherever they are adressed, the same way it is done with network packages originating from the physical machine. So, mol isn't bound to a specific interface but uses your existing network setup to send out the packages from OS X. If your network is set up to use wireless, then it should also be used by the virtualized MacOS.
