    Default problem with Gigabyte GN-WP01GS pci wireless card

    Hi,
    I am having a problem with the Gigabyte GN-WP01GS pci wireless card. I get ridiculously slow download speeds compared to the other computers in my apartment. When I speedtest.net with this card I get a 1.5 mbps download and the other computers in my apt get ~17 mbps.
    I used the standard drivers that came with the card, but I read on newegg reviews that these were no good and many people said to get the new drivers at the RAlink website. I downloaded and installed the new driver and nothing has changed. I didn't uninstall the previous driver, not sure if that is the problem, but when I check the wireless card in device manager it says it is using the RAlink driver. The Gigabyte wireless utility that came with the card is still installed. I am not sure if I am supposed to uninstall it. This computer has the following specs:
    Windows XP w/ SP2
    Athlon X2 5200+
    4gig DDR2 RAM
    640gig hard drive-western dig

    any help would be appreciated
