  Broadcom Wifi connection gets cut when downloading files

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Similar to but 1312358, the connection gets cut everytime I'm downloading a big file or a group of big files. The indicator in network manager appears connected but I can't access any site until the wifi connection is restarted. 
  Observed in Ubuntu 14.04 and 14.10.
  I've tried with the solution in the aforementioned bug but I get this:

  $ sudo iwconfig wlan0 power on
  Error for wireless request "Set Power Management" (8B2C) :
      SET failed on device wlan0 ; Operation not supported.
