    Wireless problems with Intel Wifi Link 5300 on a Dell Studio 1458 (Windows only)

      I've got a Dell Studio 1458 and just replaced the stock Dell 1397 (Broadcom) with an Intel 5300 Wifi card.   On any wifi connection it is slow and speeds are very erratic and page loads often fail (as if there was interference or barely in range), even though the signal strength is excellent.  This only happens under Windows and the card works properly in Linux Mint 9 (ubuntu-based).  I have the latest Intel drivers.  I can't figure it out.  If anyone has suggestions (other than an OS reinstall) it would be greatly appreciated!
