Comment 13 for bug 1031831

I see your point. However, I have not tested the package using the current LTS kernel on that hardware, and indeed I recently did a fresh install of Ubuntu 13.04 on that netbook and was impressed the Broadcom network works much more reliably without doing anything at all.

I am not sure where the Broadcom compatible driver for Ubuntu 13.04 came from (Ubuntu suggests the proprietary driver, but it's working very well despite not choosing it).

I can download a current 12.04.2 LTS ISO, boot from it, and see what happens with the Broadcom driver on my Acer Aspire One D260. However it will take me some time to get to it. From what you're saying I presume it's still broken.
