Win 7 slow download speed

Windows 7 Home Premium x64

Linux Mint 10 Julia x64

Both tests are taken from the same machine, same everything, besides OS.

Why is there such a difference in download speed?

My windows is fully up to date, correct drivers installed ect ect.
I've tried just about everything I can think of without any success.

Now this is not a major issue. None the less, it would be interesting to find out the cause of it.

Thanks in advance for any answers!

Probably a network, or wifi driver. If not are you running win 7 in "homegroup using IPv6?
