Windows 7: Virtual Wifi with two physical adapters

Virtual Wifi with two physical adapters

Hi everyone!
I have two physical wireless adapters, both capable of virtual wifi. When either one is plugged, alone, I can use virtual wifi without any problem. But if I then connect my other adapter, it seems like the DHCP server of ICS does not work anymore. I have tried using an old wifi adapter not capable of virtual wifi, and DHCP still works if I plug it in instead of the second one.
Is there any way to disable the virtual wifi capability of only one adapter?

I am using Windows 7 ultimate, latest drivers.
