I haven't been following this saga, but googling for Broadcom 4400 seems
to suggest that the support for this chipset might be a very recent thing.
Perhaps you could get another network card for which drivers do exist,
get the system running, and then resume your effort to get the Broadcom
working.

It is reasonable to expect some difficulties in building a system with 
barely supported hardware, however non-rare it might be.
