[driverloader] Problem with BCM4306 - Acer 1501 LMi

I tried to install the 64bit drivers for my wireless card using the linuxant 
driverloader. My distro is a 64bit compiled Gentoo.

The driverloader installed fine (make install with the .tar.gz method, version 
is 2.23). When I ran the dldrconfig I could upload the netbc564.inf and the 
bcmwl564.sys, but then I got an error message of non-detected hardware.

Below is the relevant part of dmesg.
Other symptom is that I cannot rmmod driverloader, as it gets stuck, seemingly 
waiting to unload some usb module.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.
