    Can you run internal wireless adapter and USB wireless at the same time?

    Hello, I recently bought a Cudy WU650 USB wireless adapter. I plan on trying to install the Linux drivers from the manufactures website here:

    https://www.cudy.com/wu650_software_download

    My main question / concern is if this will cause any conflict with my currently internal wireless adapter on my laptop that is working good.

    Here's my current wifi info.
    Code:
    sudo lshw -class network-network                 
           description: Wireless interface
           product: Wi-Fi 6 AX201
           vendor: Intel Corporation
           physical id: 14.3
           bus info: pci@0000:00:14.3
           logical name: wlp0s20f3
           version: 20
    Also, Per the link above I'm assuming I should probably just run this to attempt the install?
    Code:
    sudo ./install-driver.sh
    Or do I need to run the MakeFile first?
    Here's a list of all the files
    /Downloads/WU650_Linux_Driver$ ls
    8821cu.conf core docs halmac.mk Kconfig os_dep remove-driver.sh save-log.sh
    ARM64_RPI.sh debian edit-options.sh include LICENSE platform rtl8821c.mk supported-device-IDs
    ARM_RPI.sh dkms.conf hal install-driver.sh Makefile README.md rtw88_8821cu.conf

    I don't think I'll need to run > sudo Makefile
    Is that correct?

    I'm just slightly confused because it also list this information the README.md.
    I"m not sure if I should just run this apt install below or actually try to install the drivers via the .sh file mentioned above? I'm assuming it's the same thing and might be better to install online with the command below for the latest drivers?
    I appreciate any information or experience running internal Wifi on laptop in conjunction with a USB Wifi adapter! I want to tread careful and hope for the best.

    ### Installation Steps
    - Option for Debian, Kali, and Raspberry Pi Desktop (x86)

    ```
    sudo apt install -y linux-headers-$(uname -r) build-essential bc dkms git libelf-dev

    Nevermind, I got this figured out. You can run two wireless adapters at once. You can also disable them individually to test the speeds of internal vs USB wifi.
