Nope no wireless support - period.
D5200 uses an adapter and D5300 has it built in. You can shoot tethered to a PC (or laptop - I do) with ControlMyNikon.com. It's cheap and does almost everything. To be honest the dongle transmits but it's not really that useful. I used it on my D5200 and can use it on my D7100 too. I don't use it much at that.
The Nikons that have built in Wifi also burn batteries very fast as well. People really want a shoot and transmit to Facebook app but there ain't none. The real time to transmit is a pain as a pro it will dog you. You might also check out Camranger it is a tethered wireless product (costs a lot but really works well). The only feature it has that my D7100 has and you wouldn't is remote bulb mode! Nikon does kill some features on the lessor Nikon bodies that it really wouldn't have to. All things aside the D5100 is a very nice camera.
Camranger adds remote control too. Very way way cool product. It still only lets you place your shot on a computer. It won't send it to anyplace. It has one small advantage in that it does the transmission not the the camera. There is a small module tethered to the camera with it's own battery.
