So, there are two public wifi networks that I can receive; I have two wifi USB dongles. Can I configure Windows to use one USB dongle connected to one network for internet browsing and the other dongle and network for other activies (i.e bit torrent, Limewire, gaming, etc)?

SOunds to me like it could be possible, just go in your Network Connections and connect each USB WiFi to the respective wireless networks. YOu might have some performance issues though.

It is possible, but as baloo said, it will cause conflicts, and may even slow everything down.
