Hi, I've tried to get my wireless card working on Freebsd 7.0RC1 using ndis.

I've followed the steps in
where everything has been successful. But when I do kldload
./bcmwl5_sys.ko the modules loads. But ifconfig -a doesn't show the
wireless device and the blue led on the wlan button is still off
(doesn't help pressing it). Anyone who've experienced similar behavior
and knows how to get the wireless card working?
