laptop with 2 wifi adapters.

I have a laptop with 2 wifi adapters, 1 is the built in one, the other is a usb adapter. The usb adapter is connected to my DSL on wifi. I want to enable the built in adapter, and have it connect to my other router, which is then connected to cable internet. But I do not want the laptop accessing the internet via the cable connection, only the DSL connection using the USB adapter. The reason for the 2nd adapter being enabled is so I can share files off of that laptop with the rest of my network, which is connected to my wireless router which is on cable internet.

Any suggestions? lol

Easiest thing to do would be to configure the built-in adapter w/ a static IP but no gateway (iow, don't use DHCP). If an adapter has no defined gateway, it can't be used for internet access!
