Problem with Broadcom wireless driver

Hi, I have a broadcom wireless chipset and am using the native broadcom drivers with wpa_supplicant using WPA encryption. I have a problem though that even though I can get them to work, the connection is very iffy, sometimes it last for a while, othertimes only a few seconds. Is there anything I can do to make the connection stabe

I have the broadcom chipset as well, and the only way I could make it stable was to use ndiswrapper with the windows drivers. Give that a shot. One thing: The broadcom chipset is the most Linux unfriendly chipset out there! Be patient; and you can get things going.
