01) actualy a BCM4311 chipset
Very slow speeds
Normal wifi speeds
this patch solves the problme, but is not in the kernel. Been using it sense feb
with both vinella and fedora kernel.
Please try the FC6.netdev kernels:
Do these work any better for you?
This problem is resolved in the 2.6.22-rc4 kernel.
Please try the kernels here:
Do they resolve the problem as well?
Just wanted to come in here and add the traditional "me too" for the broadcom
1390 using 126.96.36.199-27. I'm using the newer mac80211 driver just fine and
everything is working, it's just that the speeds are very very slow.
Wanted to add that I also tried the more recent kernel-2.6.23-0.45.rc0.git16.fc8
and still the speeds were the same. Not sure if this included any type of fix
but just thought it was worth noting.
Mr. Linville, if you build anything else and would like me to test it please let
me know. I really would like to help solve this problem any way I possibly can,
so if you think of any other way I can help please do send an email.
Closed due to lack of response from original poster...
