Win7 - Virtualize your WiFi

An interesting feature that Microsoft was building into Win7, which allows you to virtualize your WiFi card never quite made it into Win7 in full - however an enterprising company has discovered that enough of it made it in for them to be able to complete the job.

The original feature allowed you to create multiple virtual wireless adaptors on the same physical card, and to use them for different networks.  The low-level code made it into Win7, but Microsoft never got round to finishing off the user-level interface.

Nomadia have picked up where Microsoft left off, and have created an app that will allow you to connect to the network via one interface (wired or wireless), and then to create second hotspot (using just your laptop’s WiFi card) for sharing the network to your PDA or friends.
