broadcom WiFi Aspire 5000

Ok since beta and rc wifi has been very slow and occasionally will get page can not be displayed. First off i had to just click update driver and it installs a 2006 driver which makes the wifi light solid rather than blinking and you get much better performance. But not awsome. With xp i was able to get 17mbs download speed running at i sometimes can push 11mbs now and it requires me to connect to my high end router in my basement with only 2 bars of signal.. if i connect to the the fios action tech in my bedroom right in front of me i lose speed . tried to install other versions of the broadcom but windows wont let it install. right now i am running ver/ tried to install/ but windows says no such device installed. anybody else having this issue and any resolutions
