    Need Usb Wifi Card for ICS

    Hey guys, I'm looking for any recommendations about buying a usb wifi card that will let me create a hotspot while using my internal wifi card..

    so note, - I want a wifi internal connection to be internet connection shared to a plugged in usb Wifi adapter that I setup to be a hotspot.. got it?

    (i'm not talking about sharing internet through a wired connection aka ethernet..)

    I'm a little concerned as it appears some of the usb wifi adapters don't allow this? has anyone heard of that?

    I was thinking to just get this one.. TP-LINK TL-WN725N Wireless N Nano USB Adapter 150Mbps: Computers & Accessories

    Has anybody successfully setup a home network where 1 computer has 2 wifi cards - and then you use 1 of the wifi cards to turn into a hotspot and sharing the internet for others to join that shared network??

    I know it can be done through wired ethernet and then you share using your internal wifi adapter..

    but I want to know if I have 2 usb wifi sticks in a computer, - USB wifi A. has connected to the internet, and then USB wifi B is setup as a hotspot and sharing that Usb wifi A internet..

    If your router is dual band, and one of your adapters is dual band, you can connect to the 2.4G network and then connect the dual band adapter to the 5G network...
