I have a Dell Vostro 3500 laptop with Ubuntu 13.04 installed. Wheenever this laptop is on wifi network, it makes the connection on all other devices (mac, android, windows ) using same network very slow, so much that even a simple browser page does not load on other devices.

This happens everytime. I looked at the issue at : One Ubuntu laptop on wifi occasionally makes other laptop's connection slow but do not know if that is applicable in my case or what I should be doing as the configuration (OS as well as wl kernel ) is different from that case.

My information is as follows:

$ sudo lspci -nnk | grep -A8 -i network
12:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Broadcom Corporation BCM4313 802.11b/g/n Wireless LAN Controller [14e4:4727] (rev 01)

    Kernel driver in use: wl

ff:00.1 Host bridge [0600]: Intel Corporation Core Processor QuickPath Architecture System Address Decoder [8086:2d01] (rev 05)

Kindly let me know what is the best way to resolve this. If you could give me steps that would be great
