There are no Broadcom ethernet drivers. Broadcom tend to be bad about
documentation, especially there wireless devices. So you might have
trouble getting the documentation you need to write a driver. If you
can, throw your broadcom device out and get an chipset that is
supported. Take a look in packages/devs/eth. 

Maybe a dumb question, but why are you using eCos? What do you need
that eCos offers?
