How to route traffic based on network adapter

By Zesturian ·
I'm looking for a solution to allow my laptop to communicate via two network adapters, one is wireless the other Ethernet.

I want to tell x application to use this adapter; however all others to use another adapter.

The case is that the Ethernet connection I use I prefer to do anything sensitive over, where as the wireless is a much faster connection so I use this to download with.

I am surmising this will involve using some form of proxy, or firewall filtering. Though my attempts at trying to implement such a solution on windows have proven fruitless.

I've managed to do it via linux following :

So if anyone can point me to applications or commands that would achieve the desired effect on WINDOWS XP, I'd be greatly appreciative.

What is your wireless and why is it faster than Ethernet. Ethernet should be at least 100 Mbps while wireless at most will be 108Mbps, and that is with all the speed booster stuff and theoretical speeds. And that is only across the network. They both should be using the same internet connection.

wireless uses a separate connection

They are two different connections. Won't go into details but one accessible via wireless is about 5 times the speed of the one provided by ethernet.
