Yes.  Even the card reader works.

I don't have an 802.11n network to test with, but lspci reports:

05:00.0 Network controller: RaLink RT3090 Wireless 802.11n 1T/1R PCIe

Flash doesn't have hardware accelerated video playback on Linux, so
iPlayer uses a lot of CPU. apt-get install get-iplayer and download
the programme you want to watch, then play it in MythVideo.
