For testing purposes, I would like to set-up multiple (say 3-5 to begin with) virtual machines, be able to run them all at the same time, and have each access a unique wireless connection.

The machine has a standard USB wireless adapter. We have access to a Verizon Wifi hot-spot that allows up to 10 unique connections.

The default Virtual Box configuration appears to have all instances using the same network connection.

No need to distinguish between wired and wireless here, just used bridged networking for these VMs and select your wireless adapter as the parent adapter.
