Bringing up 802.11ac on FreeBSD | Hacker News
I used to work with wireless driver guys. Some of them had no degrees (including one who worked at Lucent on Apple's Airport). Just started out doing small stuff and worked their way up. Others had EE backgrounds. One of the things about wireless is that the salient concepts are more EE than CS, even if you're on the software side. A specialized EE course on wireless communications will teach you a lot of the underlying concepts you need to understand.

Yes, it's learning on the job.
In the specific case of 802.11 (different from 'Wi-Fi' which is a marketing term from the Wi-Fi consortium), you'll also need to be familiar with the IEEE 802.11 specifications. You can do this by putting aside a block of time to read parts of the actual specs [1], supplemented by the O'Reilly 802.11 books by Matthew Gast [2] which I found to be really helpful during my time working with various 802.11 modules.
