Assuming your network card is detected and working fine, yes.
When you run the Live CD, there will be an icon on the desktop called "install". If you click that, the installer will come up, but you can still easily switch workspaces (Ctrl+Alt+left or right), and get online.
If you are able to, I recommend using Ethernet cables since Ethernet is quite a bit better for Linux support than Wireless.
