Lightbulb Broadcom driver does not work


I am attempting to enable my wireless interface in Slax Linux, so far, I know the driver I need is brcmsmac, since I have a broadcom card; and this work in Slackware.

The driver is available and does not show any errors when I load it with:

Code:
# modprobe brcmsmac
But no new interface is loaded.

Here is I've tried:

Code:
# lspci | grep Network

03:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4313 802.11b/g/n Wireless LAN Controller (rev 01)

# ifconfig -a

eth0: flags=4099<UP,BROADCAST,MULTICAST>  mtu 1500
        ether e8:11:32:5f:ff:5e  txqueuelen 1000  (Ethernet)
        RX packets 0  bytes 0 (0.0 B)
        RX errors 0  dropped 0  overruns 0  frame 0
        TX packets 0  bytes 0 (0.0 B)
        TX errors 0  dropped 0 overruns 0  carrier 0  collisions 0
        device interrupt 41  base 0xc000  

lo: flags=8<LOOPBACK>  mtu 16436
        loop  txqueuelen 0  (Local Loopback)
        RX packets 0  bytes 0 (0.0 B)
        RX errors 0  dropped 0  overruns 0  frame 0
        TX packets 0  bytes 0 (0.0 B)
        TX errors 0  dropped 0 overruns 0  carrier 0  collisions 0
Any suggestion is greatly accepted!
