You can easily try it:

	# kldload if_bwn

or

	# kldload if_bwi

and also check the dmesg output. To verify the card, see

	# pciconf -lv | less

for the card to be correctly recognized. But I cannot promise
the bwn and bwi drivers are compatible to BCM94306MP...

See "man bwn" and "man bwi" for details about hardware support.
