Windows 7: Wireless download speed slower on Windows than Ubuntu

Wireless download speed slower on Windows than Ubuntu

I have an Asus K53SV laptop running Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit and Ubuntu 12.04 as dual boot.

I have 50 Meg fiber optic and normally get around 49 Mbit/sec wireless on Ubuntu but on Windows it drops to 38-40 Mbit/sec. However when I used a cheap usb network adapter it jumps up to 49 Mbit/sec.

I have checked in device manager and the driver for the wireless card is up to date.

Does anyone have any ideas how to get the speed up?
