    It seems that support for that particular chip or firmware version is still not very stable.

    The message is telling you to pass an option to the b43 kernel module to activate support for your chip version. This may improve things or not. To do so, create a file /etc/modprobe.d/local-b43.conf containing the lines

    # Activate experimental support for some hardware revisions
    options b43 allhwsupport=1
    To make the settings come into effect, turn off networking and unload then reload the module with the commands

    rmmod b43
    modprobe b43
    Run these commands as root, i.e. with su or sudo.
