    Question asus eee pc wireless causes other pc's packet loss

    Hi all I wonder if one of you wireless guru's could help me here. I've noticed - after complaints! That when I turn my asus netbook on, which is running ubuntu 12.10, that all other PC's on the wireless lan start getting packet loss!! This is causing a significant amount of angst as you can imagin! Here is some cli I commands, can you see anything amiss?

    lsmod | grep wl
    wl 3074773 0
    cfg80211 206797 1 wl
    lib80211 14382 2 lib80211_crypt_tkip,wl

    lspci | grep Network

    Re: asus eee pc wireless causes other pc's packet loss

    I had a similar problem recently with an HP notebook. t was caused by a recent driver update. I removed bcmwl-kernel-source_6.20.155.1+bdcom-0ubuntu0.0.1_amd64.deb and replaced it with
    bcmwl-kernel-source_5.100.82.112+bdcom-0ubuntu3_amd64.deb. You can find it here. http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/...icted/b/bcmwl/ If your system is 32 bit you need the i386 version rather than the amd64. Hope this works for you.
