Rather than replace my card, I decided top follow the advice given by
'terdon' in the comments to bug #134660 on launchpad, i.e., I downloaded
the source of the legacy driver, compiled and installed it. It seems to
be working! I'm downloading a file at broadband line speeds at the
moment, which I could not do before.

I may have to re-install the driver if I get a kernel upgrade!
