My next step is to remove the bcm43xx driver and the
bcm43xx-microcode5.fw firmeware and replace with the b43 driver.

I'm mostly into OS hardening and application security
configuration...hardware and firmware is not my forte.  How does one
remove bcm43xx and install b43?

Guess I should start another topic about removing and replacing kernel
