Question questions regarding Broadcom BCM4727/BCM4313 WNIC


1) According to dmesg, my WNIC is detected as "Hybrid Wireless Controller". In what sense it's "Hybrid Wireless Controller" hybrid? Because it allows 802.11n/g/b controller and Bluetooth use the same antennas? Or how to understand this InConcert concept?
2) According to dmesg, my WNIC is "Broadcom BCM4727" and according to lspci, it's "Broadcom BCM4313". Am I correct that "Broadcom BCM4727" is a generic module used for this WNIC and "Broadcom BCM4313" is a specific chip?

According to this (PDF), yes, "hybrid" means two different types of wireless.

This may help with your Broadcom; it cites various diagnostic tools and reference you can use.
