is it possible to specify which network connection is used for transfering data between computers on a network?

i have two laptops on a home network. both are connected wirelessly to a router for an internet connection, but are also physically wired together using an ethernet crossover cable. i wonder if there is a way of setting the ethernet connection as the default network connection for transferring data between the laptops (as data transfer would be much quicker via ethernet). at the moment xp is sometimes using the wired and sometimes the wireless connection. obviously if i turn off the wireless connection it will be forced to use the ethernet connection, but i wonder if there is a way to configure xp so that i wouldn't have to turn off the wireless connection.
