Hello fhudo, and welcome to Windows Seven Forums. We welcome your questions!
I think the best you will be able to do is to create a separate "profile" for the two wireless devices. It will be like having two networks, but you can only use one at a time. It gets complicated because the network server gives a computer its IP address based on the MAC address coded into each network device. If you were to switch to a different network device, the server thinks this must be a new computer, but the computer is still trying to connect with the other device's address.
You will need to create a new network connection for each device. If you google the topic, you should find lots of help on how to set it up.
