Yes, nearly all [0] wifi USB sticks are problematic. Please get in contact 
with the driver developers [1] because this (beside the symptoms) has nothing 
to do with batman-adv. If broadcast or unicast tx/rx is broken for a specific 
hardware in a specific mode, the mesh will look broken - nothing we can do 

Kind regards,

[0] no usb stick comes to my mind at the moment which is without flaws
