TeamViewer 5.x - specifying traffic routing

I'm running TeamViewer 5.0 on a pair of Windows workstations (Vista & XP). Both are connected over a wireless network, but they are physically not too far from each other, just too far to conveniently work on both. So TeamViewer is ideal in this situation. The only problem is that it's quite slow due to the relatively slow wireless connections. But I had an idea. Both workstations have gigabit network adapters, and I could connect them both directly using a cross-wired Ethernet cable (or just connect them both to a switch), and configure them as a local LAN. But how to I tell TeamViewer to stop using the wireless adapter for traffic between the two machines, and start using the faster wired connection? Is it even possible?
