NOTE: tried NDISulator

pciconf -lv | grep -i bcm -B2
none2@pci0:13:0:0:      class=0x028000 card=0x145c103c chip=0x472714e4
rev=0x01 hdr=0x00
    vendor     = 'Broadcom Corporation'
    device     = 'BCM4313 802.11b/g/n Wireless LAN Controller'

# ndisload -p -s /home/user/bcmWireless/bcmwl564.sys -n bcmw -v 0x14e4 -d 0x4721

and get this in dmesg:

NDIS: no match for ZwQueryInformationFile

I'll report it in the github page, but it seems its not working!
