WiFi- Driver Issues

Hi, I'm new to both Arch and Linux in general. My laptop is equipped with Broadcom BCM4313 Wireless Chipset. I am currently running the bcma driver for the same. I can connect to the internet however it's really slow. I'm not sure which driver to run. But wifi was functioning at full speed in the live medium which has the iwl driver. I would like to try the iwl driver. Can anyone tell me how to unload the bcma driver and load iwl driver.
Thanks

Do you mean the wl module?  (which is on the live media)  Broadcom_wireless#broadcom-wl

Why don't you see what diver is loaded while booted to the live media?
