i have a laptop aspire 5750G with the Broadcom BCM4327. I have enabled proprietary drivers and installed it but there are some problems: First: If i do iwconfig eth2 this is the result:

eth2      IEEE 802.11abg  ESSID:"InfostradaWiFi-f480dc"  
      Mode:Managed  Frequency:2.412 GHz  Access Point: 84:C9:B2:F4:80:DD   
      Tx-Power=200 dBm   
      Retry  long limit:7   RTS thr:off   Fragment thr:off
      Encryption key:off
      Power Management:on

Encryption Key: off ---> not true i have wpa IEEE 802.11abg ---> not true my card supports n

As a plus, testing the ping with the router i get horrible random lag spikes even really close to him, every 30-40 packets the ping goes up to 700-800 for 2-3 packets, and this is REALLY annoying if i play some realtime games such as Starcraft or Heroes of Newerth (Linux native).

Another strange thing is that on other machines wireless interfaces are called wlan0..1.. i got eth2 but my connection is wireless...

Thank you very much for your support.
