    To be honest (in the circumstances) I would extract the hard drive and perform a disk to disk image. Sysprep itself doesn't support wireless (as far as I am aware), but you could still login to Windows locally, join the wireless network, then join the domain and it should be job done

    Because a laptop generally only has one?

    I'd go with a disk-to-disk; it'll be faster anyway, and laptop disks arent exactly difficult to get at. A USB NIC might work, depends on your BIOS, but you will have to inject drivers into your deployment environment first.

    Probably not. The NIC needs an onboard PXE Boot Rom. Not an awful lot of room in a USB-LAN adapter for a rom chip

    Besides these adapters probably won't work at boot. Generally they need windows drivers to run.
