2 wireless cards same laptop - HELP !!!

hey guys,

have a small question. is it possible to insert 2 wireless cards in the same laptop (running linux) so that i can connect to 2 different wireless ESSID ?

The reason being if this is possible then you can use only 1 notebook (with 2 wireless cards) to crack WEP .... one interface to capture packets and the other one to relay them ?

thanks for the help

LQ really frowns on discussions heading in this direction. I think we let a mod sort this one out.

And hangdog was right. Cracking or other such activities are
not a topic of discussion here.
