The Best Driver for Broadcom Wifi Card >>

Hi;

0c:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Inc. and subsidiaries BCM43224 802.11a/b/g/n (rev 01)

I had one of these all ready and managed linux installed.
lsmod showed this :

b43,brcmsmac
b43,brcmsmac
b43,mac80211,brcmsmac
brcmsmac
b43
b43,ssb

but right now in Arch I am getting this:

Module                  Size  Used by

mousedev               24576  0
kvm_intel             311296  0

The thing is I had better wifi reception and speed under previous linux install. What should I do?

Also Which Driver is better for BCM43224 chipset?

You did actively install the wl driver, you can just remove it again if you had better experiences with the in kernel driver.
