b43 performance issue with onboard BCM4318

Reported by: pozega.tomislav@… Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone: Chaos Calmer 15.05
Component: packages Version: Trunk
Keywords: Cc:


i've tested several revisions with barrier breaker and attitude adjustment stable but in each case the performance of integrated bcm4318 wireless with b43 driver is bad.

for some reason the tx rate stays at 18 mbps most of the time resulting in quite low throughput.

if i try to manually set tx to 24 mbps the wifi drops and it's impossible to connect anymore.

also setting different txpower has no any effect

Master, managed or what mode are you using?
Check this link:
Another thing you can do is delete b43 driver and install broadcom-wl.
