I have a dell latitude x300 laptop, with the broadcom BCM4309 mini pci
wireless card.

I have tried ndising it... first having problems with syntax on line 13,
and converting from utf into ascii, trying different driver versions etc.

It seems I always get to this point.
where you:
kldload ndis
kldload if_ndis

if i load one, i cannot load the other, says file exists, and my
wireless card does not show up

I than tried a netgear wireless card, that i have sucessfully ndis'd on
ubunto on an old compaq laptop..

For the latest example i followed these instructions to the T

but same problem
and no ndis showing up in dmesg or ifconfig

am I missing somthing?
do i need to enable somthing in my kernal, or disable acpi?

any clues?

I've read about there being a million different broadcom drivers,.. but
i couldnt even get it to work on my netgear,

This example is old.
Don't use ndiscvt use ndisgen.
It will detect and convert the inf file automaticaly if it is not ascii.
Then you will have a file named "bcmwl5_sys.ko" if the sys file was
bcmwl5.sys, then try
kldload bcmwl5_sys.ko and see what happens.
