    Only one can be used if you have access to only one Wifi Access Point.

    For what purpose?

    It won't give you a greater bandwidth, or faster speed, if that's what you're thinking ....

    More than likely, it'll confuse both you and the computer.

    Nothing, probably. You're assuming an intelligence of the OS that even chatGPT does not yet have.

    Best guess? You'll lose Wi-Fi and even removing the adapters won't help you recover... so make sure you create a Restore point before even experimenting.

    But, hey... what do I know?

    You have multiple Wi-Fi adapters available to use. They will co-exist quite happily.

    Correct. Each WiFi access point can only have one WiFi adapter connected to it, if you have another access point available (such as the WiFi Hotspot I've set up for this test) then each WiFi adapter can be connected to a different access point at the same time.
