Wireless working SLOW on dell studio 1558

I am using a Dell Studio 1558 with windows 7 ultimate 64 bit. I have the dell 1520 Wireless Mini-card installed.

The wireless on my windows is very slow which is frustrating. Using linux on the same wireless system gives me good speeds. I suspect there is a problem with the driver in windows. How do i fix this/??

If you enter the express tag and have not changed the wifi device, is the one to use.


If we had your complete system specs (or express code) we might be able to help.
