I have xubuntu 13.10 installed on a late 2013 macbook pro. It has a broadcom wireless card:
lspci -vvnn | grep 14e4 02:00.0 Multimedia controller : Broadcom Corporation Device [14e4:1570] Subsystem: Broadcom Corporation Device [14e4:1570] 03:00.0 Network controller : Broadcom Corporation BCM4360 802.11ac Wireless Network Adapter [14e4:43a0] (rev 03)
I'm running the latest broadcom driver from Ubuntu:
rsyring@LofTEX:~$ dpkg -l | grep -i broadcom ii bcmwl-kernel-source 22.214.171.124+bdcom-0ubuntu1 amd64 Broadcom 802.11 Linux STA wireless driver source
But, I'm having wireless internet problems. Running ping, I'm showing significant packet loss, up to 100%, and also sometimes showing "errors" in the ping statistics.
I've seen this same behavior on two different wireless networks. The wireless works fine when running OSX.
