b43 broadcom wireless driver

I really wish the b43 driver would work better... I keep losing the connection after a certain time. It is much better in 2.6.25.7 than in 2.6.26.6, but it's still disappointing to keep having to remove and reinsert the module to stay online. I'm really disappointed in Broadcom. The intel wireless drivers are a lot more reliable and obviously broadcom could do much more to ensure its hardware works well in Linux. The b43 team still does a great job at the open source driver for the seemingly pretty limited hardware. Still I guess if you want good Linux support, avoid Broadcom, prefer Intel or other Linux-friendly hardware manufaturers.
