    Re: broadcom 4313 unstable

    Hi, your card,BCM4313 is just that, card #4313
    i could just as easily be BCM8920. The driver is
    determined by the 14e4 # [14e4:4727] 'wl' driver
    broadcom-kernel-source.
    If possible unplug the usb wireless and from a wired
    connection....please do..
    Code:
    sudo apt-get remove --purge bcmwl-kernel-source
    sudo modprobe -r wl
    then rebuild..
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install linux-headers-generic
     sudo apt-get install --reinstall bcmwl-kernel-source
    sudo modprobe wl
    unplug the wired connection and test.
    thanks.

    As a workaround we have to extract the firmware from the card itself with b43-fwcutter... Read Here (especially read the section, "If you are using the b43 driver from 3.2 kernel or newer"). Following the instructions had fixed a similar issue for me.
    Also revisit the link I posted earlier.

    Good Luck.

    hi
    i have just tried your method, in synaptic i removed everything else than b43-fwcutter, rebooted then did what in the link you gave me, after rebooting, in the network manager there is only the usb one showing


    here some infos :
    Code:
    /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf  :
    #blacklist b43
    #blacklist bcma
    blacklist ssb
    blacklist brcmsmac
    #blacklist brcmsmac
    #blacklist bcma
