Providing some technical information may actually get you some help.
You've stated you have a speed problem with a wireless card, but didn't
even state which card, or rev of chip.  The way you've formed your
inquiry you have limited possible responders to those on this list who
actually have the same exact Broadcom chip you have, but you haven't
stated which one you have.

This is a technical mailing list.  Provide some technical details please.

02:03.0 Network controller [0280]: Broadcom Corporation BCM4306 802.11b/g Wireless LAN Controller [14e4:4320] (rev 02)

Here are the Google hits I referenced: http://www.google.com/search?q=bcm43xx+1+mb%2Fs+linux&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:unofficial&client=iceweasel-a#hl=en&client=iceweasel-a&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:unofficial&sa=X&ei=sZPeTd71IJTZiAKfxdnqCg&sqi=2&ved=0CBUQBSgA&q=wireless+1Mb/s+linux&spell=1&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.&fp=859f00ba5791172e&biw=1680&bih=858

What else should I provide?  Using vanilla Squeeze, wicd as wireless manager.  Already configured wicd wireless-settings.conf to be 54 Mb/s but the RX rate remains slow.

Was curious if anyone had figured out a workaround.
