Default Broadcom wireless driver

I have a Linksys WMP54GS wireless card I'm trying to get working. I found this link that gives the info for the Broadcom Airforce card and similar. OpenBSD recognizes the card as bwi, but I can't get it to work. I installed the bwi firmware linked to on the page I linked to above using pkg_add and then rebooted with the installation CD and got this:

Available network interfaces are: bwi0 fxp0 vlan0.
Which one do you wish to configure? (or 'done') [bwi0]
IPv4 address for bwi0? (or 'dhcp' or 'none') [dhcp]
Issuing hostname-associated DHCP request for bwi0.
bwi0: error 2, could not read firmware bwi-airforce
bwi0: error 2, could not read firmware bwi-airforce
bwi0: no link ............. sleeping
bwi0: error 2, could not read firmware bwi-airforce
ifconfig: SIOCDIFADDR: Can't assign requested address
Issuing free-roaming DHCP request for bwi0.
bwi0: error 2, could not read firmware bwi-airforce
bwi0: no link ............. sleeping
bwi0: error 2, could not read firmware bwi-airforce
ifconfig: SIOCDIFADDR: Can't assign requested address

It obviously recognizes the card but not the firmware. My question is if there is a way to get it to read the firmware or somehow access it and ultimately get my wireless working.
