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.
