i have 2 wifi cards. they both work. when i boot they both try to connect at the same time. i need an app that lets me pick between them and turn them on and off independently. i got network selector but it works somewhat.
i want to disable one card completely but be able to enable it anytime. any suggestions?????????????????:D

Did you get a solution to this? I'm very interested in a similar problem: have a laptop with built-in wifi + want to use a USB-wifi-dogle with a cantenna to extend range. How can I easily flip between them (or can they both operate at the same time without interfering??
