We have two MacBook Pros same generation but one is Retina


I'm using a Linksys EA4500 router, firmware is fully up to date


Under 10.8.1 (fully up to date) both machines see a 300 to 450Mbits speed and if I ping the wireless router all of the pings are under 3ms


Under Windows 7 x64 (fully up to date) both machines see about 10-12Mbits speed but I see all sorts of time outs and high latency when I ping the wireless router, they look like 1,2,2,2,1,3,4,6,455,500,timeout,timeout,1,1,2,3 and so on


Both of these tests were done standing infront of the router


Both machines are running of the Broadcom 902.11n driver (dated 04/05/2012)



Is any one else experiencing the same issues? I understand Bootcamp is provided as is but this driver is bunk

MacBook Pro (15-inch, Mid 2012), OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.1)
