Default bad wifi performance in windows xp

Hi, I recently upgraded to windows vista from xp home sp2 and noticed the wifi performed much better, my speed improvement went from around 150kbps to 500kbps average download speed, unfortunately i had to go back to windows xp due to driver issues with other hardware and after a clean install I still have very slow wifi, since this is obviously a software or driver based issue, does anybody know of some good (preferably free of charge) software that would help improve my wireless speed?

Have you looked for a newer driver for your network adapter?
