Broadcom driver strange console output

Hi

I've got a working wlan for my notebook, but I experienced some strange issues:
- it takes about 1 1/2 minutes to connect to a wlan network
- it often disconnects from the network, even with around 40Mb connection
- it consumes a lot of power
- the iwconfig looks really strange

The last two points started to make me think about my wifi. Maybe the driver isnt installed correctly?
Here some console output:

Code:

iwconfig with connected wlan:
Code:
iwconfig
lo        no wireless extensions.

p8p1      no wireless extensions.

eth1      IEEE 802.11  Nickname:""

          Link Quality:4  Signal level:198  Noise level:176

power consumption, while typing this:
Code:

  3.06 W      2.1 pkts/s                Device         Network interface: eth1 (wl)
The broadcom-wl driver seems to be installed correctly:
Code:
sudo yum install broadcom-wl
[sudo] password for pille: 
Loaded plugins: langpacks, presto, refresh-packagekit
Setting up Install Process
Package broadcom-wl-5.60.48.36-1.fc13.noarch already installed and latest version
Nothing to do
I'm currently running fedora 15 with kernel 2.6.40.4-5 and gnome-shell 3.0.2.

Greetings
Pille
