No, ndis wrapper will not work on ppc. It basically runs the x86 code in the windows driver which doesn't really work on a ppc processor.

Sorry!

I think that's a BCM4320 which is very similar to the BCM4306 that's in the AE. Either way, it's an unsupported chipset and currently will not run on ppc linux.

Sorry.
