The quick answer is no, they dont. Storage of wep wpa keys and managing connection secuirty is in software as far as I am aware
and I have never seen this supported on wifi either...
Please excuse brevity and mistakes, this email was composed on an Android smartphone.
Thanks and best regards,

I'm trying to plan ahead for administrative tasks on a remote FE that
will be using wifi for networking.
I'm wondering (haven't found anything on it by googling, yet) whether
wifi cards support wake on lan or not.
Can't use ethtool on mine (D-Link WDA-2320, atheros-based) and haven't
found an equivalent to ethtool for wifi cards that shows anything
about wake on lan. (Tried iwconfig.)
Posting at the bottom:
My Dell (on confirming) E6500 has a BIOS option of WOL on WLAN, so I suggest it will depend on your BIOS. Like Richard I have
no idea how it works, but the Dell BIOS refers to a special WLAN message - presumably a WiFi Magic packet....so presumably the
setting powers the WiFi card when stood by or even off.
Look to your HW BIOS.
