Support for Broadcom BCM4360 through something like Ndiswrapper?

On my router's (Asus RT-AC87U) support page ( it reads that WiFi module is not available because there are no Linux drivers available for Broadcom BCM4360 chipset.

I was wondering whether it would be possible to use something like Ndiswrapper ( to use drivers from Windows where proprietary drivers for Linux aren't made available by the vendor?
Not only for this particular chip, but also any other ones where you don't have a linux package.
Even if including the packaged driver in the distro is not possible, maybe a sh script/tutorial to add it ourselves would be of help.

Thanks in advance!

Ndiswrapper could only (sort of) work on x86 machines because the available DOS/Windows driver binaries are built for x86. An ARM or MIPS processor simply can't run them.
