Virtual Wi-Fi - how to select a specific Wi-Fi adapter as "hostednetwork"

  1. Is there a way to choose on which wifi adapter the virtual hosted network will be created? Because I am using an external USB adapter with stronger antenna but windows prefers the internal one. I use both of them what makes it more difficult, if not, I could simply deactivate it, the it will choose the external automatically... any advises?

    There could be a simple solution to my problem: If I deactivate the other adapter it will automatically start the hosted network on the active adapter (netsh wlan start hostednetwork) ... Is there a way to deactivate a specific wifi adapter per batch file? That would be a trick to get the hosted network on the desired adapter.
    The script should include three steps:
    1. deactivate the wifi adapter that I don't want to use as hosted network
    2. netsh wlan start hostednetwork
    3. reactivate the wifi adapter
    So I could simply run this script as a scheduled task on boot up or login..
    Anyone can help me?
    Thx!
