[Bug 856314] Re: very slow internet connection with brcmsmac driver


For me none of the other drivers are working, so I'm stuck with
brcmsmac. Have been using it for hours now and suddenly I started
getting very slow DL speeds (~70KB/s). On Ubuntu 14.04 LTS and
3.13.0-24-generic kernel. So, confirming the issue still persists for
newer kernels.

  very slow internet connection with brcmsmac driver

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  Using the daily build of Ubuntu 11.10, using the default brcmsmac driver, I sometimes (randomly) get a very slow internet connection that seems to completely halt. If I disconnect the internet connection and re-connect, it is OK again, but only until it happens again, randomly. 
  I have a Broadcom 4313 driver. 
  This bug does not happen on previous distributions or on my windows partition.

  I also cannot install propriety drivers instead, because of another bug:
