Which driver is better ? i've been using STA , but now i switched to b43 and i think b43 is better in performance than STA .
for supported broadcom chipsets the b43 binary packages almost always work better. hopefully we can look forward to better open source drivers eventually (like the change from madwifi to ath5k/ath9k). just my 2 cents...broadcom has been a thorn in the side of linux for some time. i remember having to use ndis-wrapper to get any amount of stability out of broadcom.
