    Patching 802.11 Linux STA driver for Kernel 2.6.37

    Thank you dude!
    It seems that it's still necessary to apply also the patch from broadcom for > 2.6.37 , so for kernels 2.6.38 it's a double patching. By this way i'm gonna patch my nuts too :-)

    I do wonder if them joining the Linux Foundation (specially at the Silver level) will make that much of a difference. Can only pray that it will.
    Not just yet :/. The same thing.

    Maybe 2.6.38 will better
    I'm using the STA driver on 2.6.35.11 with a Dell Mini 9 BCM4312. Provides flawless performance. The kernel provided module was pretty much useless.

    Personally, I've only had acceptable performance on Intel and Atheros wireless chips using the kernel provided modules.

    2.6.37 is supposed to have better Broadcom drivers since they joined the Linux Foundation.
    Quote:
    In September, Broadcom® announced it had open sourced its drivers for
    selected Wi-Fi chipsets, a pivotal move that garnered applause throughout
    the Linux community. Since then, the driver has been integrated into the
    latest Linux kernel release 2.6.37 and, as a result, is actively being
    improved upon by the entire Linux community. Given its portfolio of
    semiconductors for wired and wireless communications, Broadcom is an
    important addition to The Linux Foundation.
