USB Wireless Drivers with Longsleep Linux Kernel
I just used a vanilla debian distro with longsleep 101 kernel and did a 'sudo apt-get install linux-firmware'. It got my NetGear USB wifi dongle and my old dlink dongle running after a reboot. Did you try it?
Unless you have a very close relationship with your current linux-installation, you might want to consider reimaging the microsd-card with a current debian build and use the scripts in /usr/local/sbin to update uboot and kernel first, enlarge sd-card and then do a 'sudo apt-get update' before you install linux-firmware package.

It takes about an hour if you have a decent broadband connection (mine is 30/10 and it took 50 minutes).
