If you disabled Microsoft virtual adapter does this increase wireless+

I would like to know if its a fact that disabling Microsoft virtual adapter increases Wireless performance in terms of signal + speed.

The second question is would it also increase faster start up time in windows 7 from cold boot since it has DHCP has to assign a IP address for it?

As above No. The virtual adapter might take up 0.002% or so but you would not notice it
