    I have Windows 7 x64 installed on my Mid 2009 13" unibody MacBook.

    The Broadcom Wifi drivers which installed with Boot Camp 3.0 were version dated 10/22/2008 and have better performance or at least a connection speed than the current Broadcom Wifi drivers that came with Boot Camp 3.1 which are version dated 8/21/2009.

    With the old drivers, I connect to my network at 300Mbps with the new ones I connect at 130Mbps.

    Anyone else seen this issue?

    Not sure what to tell you, but I also got a huge improvement in speed/connection with the Boot Camp 3.1 update. It works as fast as it does in OS X now.

    Don't know what to tell u either, but to test this further, I moved a 512MB file across my network to a computer that is connected on the 1Gigabit port of my Wifi router and with the old driver it took 40s the new driver took 60s.
