Actually i have installed the version 011 of b43-fwcutter, not the driver. I don't remember having installed any compat-linux-wireless driver. Now i have erased all firmware files from /var/firmware/b43* Then i have installed b43-fwcutter official package (version 008 it says) and extracted the correct firmware. Before extracting this firmware the wifi card was not working at all. After installing it it works again, but its name has the "_rename". Right now it seems i have the good firmware. What do you mean exactly by "_uninstall_ the compat-linux-wireless driver"?
