The broadcom wl.o driver is only availible as a binary for mips. You will
not be able to use it on an x86 platform.
You have to use the ndiswrapper not broadcom.
> Described in the README as:
> Broadcom wl.o driver
> This is a generic Linux driver for Broadcom IEEE 802.11a/g cards.
> However, it is proprietary driver that is not publicly available
> except for couple of exceptions, mainly Broadcom-based APs/wireless
> routers that use Linux. The driver binary can be downloaded, e.g.,
> from Linksys support site (http://www.linksys.com/support/gpl.asp)
> for Linksys WRT54G. The GPL tarball includes cross-compiler and
> the needed header file, wlioctl.h, for compiling wpa_supplicant.
> This driver support in wpa_supplicant is expected to work also with
> other devices based on Broadcom driver (assuming the driver includes
> client mode support).
