I believe the hardware address is the atheros native to the computer and it doesnt work because
the hardware switch is blown... I want the ralink as wlan0 and I believe Atheros occupation of
WLAN is blocking me...
i dont think there is anything wrong with having 2 wifi adapters running on the same system (it would essentially be the same as having 2 ethernet nics on the same system).
i would assume the usb one would check in as wlan1 ?
