Keyboard Freezes with Wireless Use on HP Pavillion dm1

http://askubuntu.com – I recently bought an HP Pavillion dm1 laptop for everyday use. To get the wireless card working, I had to install the proprietary Broadcom drivers. However this has created a problem: from time to time, the keyboard and touchpad freeze. The system is not frozen, and whatever was running keeps on running. If I connect an external kb/mouse to the system they work fine, and if I run sudo modprobe -r psmouse sudo modprobe psmouse from a terminal, then the laptop's kb and touchpad regain their functionality. If I switch of the wireless, this problem does not happen any more. Similar pro (HowTos)
