Hello,
I am not 100% sure, but I don’t think either the bwi(4) or bwn(4) drivers 
support the BCM4313. I am in the midst of updating the bwn driver but this is 
still a way off. In the meantime, NDIS is your best bet. By the way, the device 
name would be:
bwi0 if you are using bwi,
bwn0 if you are using bwn,
ndis0 if you are using a driver generated with ndis.
Hope this helps!
