Force application to specific NIC

Toshiba satellite / X SERIES

Specs: Windows Vista, Intel Core II duo
I recently installed a Linksys WRT54GS router and now my laptop connects wirelessly. My kids play an online game (Combat Arms) that is a peer-to-central-server kind of connection and their play has taken a lag hit with the slower WiFi connection. Now I can still connect to the router by ethernet cable and have both NIC's open. But how do I force Windows to connect their game using the wired NIC not the wireless one? I don't wanna keep disconnecting and reconnecting WiFi just to let them play. The game uses no ports to forward.

Any help would be appreciated! They nag a lot.

Create a hardware profile.

One profile has wired enabled and wireless disabled.

Other has just the opposite.

You would call the wired profile game and the wifi profile wifi.

Kids would have to boot the correct profile to game wired.
