Are other machines slow too, or is it just yours? You might want to make sure it is an issue with your specific machine / OS, and not your router, modem, ISP, etc... –  John Apr 24 '12 at 0:38

Make sure you are running the right firmware and that the right module is being loaded.. you can use dmesg|grep firmware to see if there are any kernal based firmware error messages. look up the firmware and drivers needed for your device and make sure that they are both correct. most broadcom chips require additonal firmware that cannot be installed by default out of legality
