    Poor wireless performance with STA broadcom drivers.

    I have noticed very poor performance in ubuntu 12.04 when I use the STA drivers for my hp-pavilion g series laptop with broadcom 4313 wireless when compared to the same with windows 7. Also when I am connected with the laptop it will not allow any of my android devices to connect and if they do they are very slow.

    There is a bit of controversy as to whether the Broadcom STA driver is even correct for your device. Please run:
    Code:
    lspci -nn -d 14e4:
    Is your device 14e4:4727? I'd remove the STA driver and try brcmsmac.

    It is

    07:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Broadcom Corporation BCM4313 802.11b/g/n Wireless LAN Controller [14e4:4727] (rev 01)

    I am not familiar with that driver I'll run a search

    Let me save you a few moments:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get remove --purge bcmwl-kernel-source
    Reboot. Post back and tell us if the wireless works better.
