How to have 2 wireless adapters on Laptop

    I'm using Vista Business. My Sony laptop has a built in Intel wireless g
    adapter that works with my Belkin n1 Vision wireless router. I've purchase
    a Belkin n1 wireless card adapter. The card has much stronger signal
    strength in some settings and would like to be able to choose to use it when
    appropriate. Both adapters identify the same Belkin wireless network I call
    home63. The internal card logs in automatically. I cannot get the security
    key to be accepted for the Belkin card for the same network. I've
    disconnected from the home63 built in wireless then tried to establish a
    connection with the Belkin but am unsuccessful. I've fiddled with Manage a
    Wireless Network and it sure looks like there should be a way to have both
    wireless adapters going essentially at the same time and the stronger signal
    be the priority, or at the least be able to select which connection to use.
    Any ideas would be appreciated.

    Thanks Jack. Got a good piece of information with your tip and link. If it
    doesn't solve this particular problem I know it would help in some others.
    I'll do some experimenting.
