It seems as Adelie is heading towards the libre route, undeclared maybe, but non-free blobs are not by default included
Wifi free software I believe only exist for atheros chipped wifi cards. You can run a non-free repeater and connect to it through ethernet and still have a free system.
For a while I had to use wifi as my only source of connection to the internet and it was a pain, but eventually I discarded it and all software related to wifi.
