Damm cant think of anything then, (I did exactly what you are trying
last night, and my full steps we just to download the drivers (was a
broadcom rebadged as belkin) point ndsigen at the appropriate files
(typically the inf wasnt a .inf but a .ntf for some reason) then kldload
ndis followed by kldload the created .ko (after moving it to /boot/modules)

Sorry I cant help more.
