    Set the "minimum power consumption" to disabled under the driver's advanced options. Also disable pcie link state power management under power options. Hope this fixes your issues since I also have a Broadcom adapter without issues.

    Laptop half-mini cards are pretty cheap on Ebay. Or grab one from local shop. Would be worth it to me just to test.

    The Atheros AR5BWB222 has been working great for me.
