A new Chromium OS build has been released by Dell

Presumably, this one also comes with Wi-Fi support

In 2009, Dell was the first PC manufacturer to provide its customers with a Chrome-like experience. Soon after Google officially announced they are into the OS game and subsequently made the Chromium OS source code available, the Texas headquartered company released their first build. Dell Inspiron Mini owners were able to download it (for free) and find out what the much-anticipated Google Chrome OS will be all about.

According to Chrome Story, Dell released a new build, which also offers Wi-Fi support. Users can visit the company’s FTP website and download the May 13 x86 .gz file. After that, a WinRar or a similar file compression tool would be needed to extract the .img file. Make sure you have the Windows Image Writer installed and a USB flash drive (at least 4GB), then follow the full instructions, which can be found here.
