When I installed Ubuntu 11.04 it suggested I should use the proprietary STA driver, so I did. This caused a lot of problems and I spent hours troubleshooting. I then tried removing the driver by unchecking the driver in Additional Drivers and now everything works fine.
Obviously Ubuntu recommends the STA driver but the other driver seems to work much better. All documentation I find about Ubuntu and BCM4313 also suggests the STA driver.
Why is the STA driver recommended?
What is the advantage of using that driver?
Will it cause problems when not using the STA driver?
