Virtual WiFi from Microsoft
Virtual WiFi allows the computer user to simultaneously connect his computer to access multiple wireless networks with just one WLAN card. It basically makes the single WLAN card to appear as multiple (virtual) WLAN cards to the user. This would help the user to configure each virtual card to connect to different wireless network.
Some uses for this according to Microsoft are
"With VirtualWiFi, you can connect to a guest's machine or play games over an ad hoc network, while surfing the web via an infrastructure network.
You can use VirtualWiFi to connect your ad hoc network, which may contain many nodes, to the Internet using only one node.
VirtualWiFi can help make your home infrastructure network elastic by extending its access to nodes that are out of range of your home Wifi access point."
