How to connect to multiple wifi networks

    Categories: How To

Have multiple wifi connections in your area and want to connect to different networks simultaneously ?

The most obvious answer might be to have having two or more wifi cards installed in your computer to enable the connections. If you dont have the hardware there is an alternative.

Virtual Wifi from Microsoft research labs is your answer. Virtual Wifi enables you to connect to multiple wifi networks using a single WLAN card.

It enables this by making a single card appear as multiple WLAN cards to the Windows OS. Users can then configure each WLAN card’s settings separately. This way you can connect to different wireless networks at the same time.
