When you say the Broadcom wireless adapter doesn't appear on the list of device drivers, do you mean in Device Manager under the "Network adapters" category? Have you tried running "Scan for hardware changes" (in the Device Manager under the Action menu)?
The computer has an Ethernet adapter as well, right? If you connect to the modem using an Ethernet cable (or a USB cable if the modem allows it) you can connect, right?
It sounds like the computer doesn't recognize the wireless adapter at all. Has the computer been taken apart at all recently, either by you or a technician?
