Background: I have a custom built gaming machine running Windows 7 RC for which I bought a fairly cheap wireless adapter because I thought my dorm would have firewire internet again this year. When I got there they were all wireless. I immediately ordered a new decent wireless-n adapter and just installed it today. As I was installing, i thought "why should I even bother removing my older adapter?"
So, my question is: should I?
What are the pros/cons of having two adapters instead of one?
Is there a speed increase if they're connected to different networks? The same network?
Is the opposite true, will it slow my download speed?
Speakeasy speed test was inconclusive on those last points.
So far the biggest benefit I've seen is that I can always get a good signal from at least one of my adapters, since they have different antenna setups.
What do you think? Any tips?
