    Greetings everyone,

    I was wondering if it was possible if you can run two wireless cards at one time. One possiblity I thought of might be to use vmware to do it. Has anyone tried it yet? Please let me know. Thank you for your help.

    Never tried it, but you can use multiple NIC cards in XP and Linux, so I am sure you can use 2 wireless cards. I am not sure what the advantage is, but I am sure you can do it.

    Are you trying to create a bridge between two wireless networks? Surely the second receiver will only see what the first can see, unless it is remote.

    I'm testing the security of my network. I want to set one for packet sniffing. I read somewhere that it would be easier to use two computers instead of one. Since I don't have an extra laptop, I thought it would be more practical to use one laptop with two NICs and vmware. The second NIC would be run with vmware. If anyone has tried this already please let me know. Thanks!
