Yes, you can. Use  usb_modeswitch and sakis3g to connect your board to the internet.
It's sad when you need internet to download lsusb, usb_modeswitch and sakis3g:
lsusb  # show list of usb
curl https://www.modmypi.com/download/sakis3g.tar.gz -O -k # download sakis3g
tar -xzvf sakis3g.tar.gz
chmod +x sakis3g
apt install bzip2
sudo ./sakis3g --interactive # follow the guide

Not all wifi dongles are supported. Especially not out of the box. You have to choose some that is known to work ...

1. https://www.armbian.com/orange-pi-pc/ and download image, first one is best choice.
2. Check "Tested 3rd party hardware" and observe which wireless dongles works out of the box. Chip is written in BLUE so you can find a compatible ones.

3. Buy such adaptor if you don't already have one.
