What is the best way to install two wireless devices under 11.3?

I have an Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG built in on my laptop, and this has always been (relatively) simple to get running on both 11.1 and 11.2

When I install 11.3 I will also be installing an RT2870-based USB device (Jensen Airlink85300 LongRange Extreme-N 802.11b/g/n)

I must have wireless enabled under install to get the Intel recognized, but should I also have the RT2870 plugged in and ready to go? Or would it be best to wait until everything else is up and running?

:dont-know:

As the 2870 is a staging driver of unknown quality and is essentially
unsupported, I would not use it until the system is up and running. At that
point, you can unload the 3945 driver and try the 2870.

Many thanks :slight_smile:
