Hello,

Netbook with broadcom 4312.

Booted LiveUSB, activated Broadcom, STA restricted drivers, used WPA encrypted wireless without any problems.

Installed Ubuntu to harddrive, booted, didn't see any restricted drivers, installed bcmwl-kernel-source via synaptic, restricted drivers automatically activated, entered WPA key, connecting, but usually disconnects within a minute. When they connection does work, there seems to be tons of dropped packets. Any idea how to fix the install?

Thanks!
