I've tested my BCM4318 which is
06:05.0 0280: 14e4:4318 (rev 02)
        Subsystem: 1468:0311
and it still works fine after using iperf for 20 minutes (about 3.2 GB
transfered to my notebook with 14e4:4318). Average speed was 22.5 Mb/s
and I was quite close to the AP.

I'll try:
1) Switching to the 478.104 firmware
2) Using ftp instead of iperf
3) Moving to some other room, to increase distance
