I am using a machine with a wireless connection and an GPRS dial-up connection. The wireless network is my primary source of internet access. The GPRS dial-up is to access test a a prototype that I am developing.

I would like to use Google Chrome for regular browsing and Mozilla Firefox for testing the prototype. Is there a way that this can be made possible?

If your primary connection is the Wireless then your default gateway must point to the Wireless.
In order to use the GPRS for the prototype testing, use a static route on the pc to point to the gps.
Lets say the prototype IP is the 20.0.0.1 and that your ip settings in GPRS is 192.168.0.1/24 with DG:192.168.0.2

Open a cmd and type route add 20.0.0.1 mask 255.255.255.255 192.168.0.2

Hope it helps
