I am helping a friend remotely.  his wifi connection doesnt' seem to be working.  it conencts, gets an IP but no packets go through.  I am remotely connected through the wired port on his laptop

How would I tell the laptop to ping out through a specific NIC when there's 2 to choose from?  Normally it'll use the wired connection because its faster.  and I don't want to mess up my connection over the wired connection using

Route command somehow?  
Ping using nic command?
