Windows 7: Linksys WMP54GS

Windows 7
Linksys WMP54GS

Okay, so i have a Linksys WMP54GS (PCI card). When i installed Windows 7, it came with its own driver. (broadcom 802.11g) With the driver that came with Windows 7, it is slower than it was when it was with Windows XP and using the Linksys driver. So i decided to install the Linksys driver. When i put try to install it using the CD it came with, it will say that it installed, but i can't find a way to change it from the Broadcom Driver to the Linksys driver.

Can you guys help please?

Can't you just remove the old driver or uninstall the card?
Config/System/Hardware etc.
Add it again with the new driver.
Point to the new driver on cd and not to windows itself who will install it's own version.
