The last kernel update on 12.1 was in July 2012, and the last
broadcom-wl update was in September 2012 with no changes to 12.1. When
did you detect the problem?
Did you blacklisted the modules b43 and brcmsmac?

I tested the driver today on 12.2 (kernel 3.4.11) with a BCM4322 chip
and got a stable 40 Mbit connection.

Are there some relevant infos in dmesg?

kind regards
