The iwconfig command seems to confirm that basically your Broadcom wlan adapter works fine and that your wlan connection seems to work fine, too.base1268@BASE1268-RV-511 ~ $ iwconfig

Not for sure. Yet, I could imagine that on your Windows machine like on mine an on access antivirus software checks incoming data streams from the internet for signs of malware. This may have a negative impact on video streams. This is why the antivirus software that I use on Windows allows the user - at his own risk - to define exceptions, i.e. data streams which will not be checked.I've found that since using Linux I get a smoother uninterrupted video streaming.... [...] are you able to explain...?
As much as I would like to confirm so, the truth is that different users may come to exactly opposite conclusions. It depends on your hardware as well as on the software that you are using. If you go through the Mint forums and/or the Ubuntu forums you will not have problems locating threads where users complain that their wireless speed is better on Windows than it is on Ubuntu or on Mint.I'm wondering if Linux does a better job of managing the internet connexion than windows...?
