I suggest you include more explicit information when requesting help.

You say you tried to "load the .ko driver" you got from ndisgen.

 From what I remember, there should have been 3 .ko's generated by 
ndisgen, which have to be loaded in this order :

kldload bcm<N1>.cat.ko
kldload bcm<N2>.dll.ko
kldload bcm<N3>.sys.ko

So what exactly are you trying ?

I can not help you beyond a point because I do not have that card 
myself. And as I said earlier, Broadcom open source support for its NIC 
is virtually non-existent. Perhaps Atheros would have been a better choice.
