I have problem with drivers on my laptop. My wifi adapter is Broadcom BCM4313 802.11bgn Wireless Network Adapter

I am on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, and my kernel is : 3.13.0-40-generic

I was trying three different drivers drivers:

wl - working fine, but not compatible with all routers, so sometimes I cannot connect to wifi network, especialy when wifi network is in b/g/n mixed mode or only in n mode. So I cannot use "full speed" of internet connection.

brcmsmac - compatible with all routers, I can connect to all wifi networks. But internet connection is totally lagged, sometimes I have to wait more than a minute for loading a webpage. It is not possible to use it. (it is interesting that ping output is good)

bcma - Unable to connect to any wifi network, it doesnt work for me

What do you suggest to me? Thank you.


I advise you to read and follow the very detailed instructions at Installing Broadcom Wireless Drivers on this site. This is the best resource on the net for installing Broadcom drivers.
