Creating Wifi hotspot using SECOND wifi adapter

So, there are many articles out there that will show you how to use cmd prompt to create a wifi hotspot (eg: this article http://www.eightforums.com/tutorials/52910-internet-connection-sharing-create-wifi-hotspot.html)

However, is there anyway to do this with TWO separate wifi adapters? That is, use one adapter to connect to your router and the other to act as the router? Some articles seem to indicate this is the ideal setup but no one seems to specify how to control which wifi adapter is used to create the wifi hostpot in command prompt.

Thanks for any help.

If I can get the basics to work, the next step is to try to integrate a VPN so that I can basically use my PC as a VPN router (but with no physical ethernet connection).

It is no different than bridging an Ethernet and Wifi adapter.
