Point Internet Explorer to use 2nd network connection, windows 7

I have a Laptop hooked to a network with a gateway of 10.x.x.x

It also has a wireless connection with a gateway of 192.x.x.x

It is possible to point internet explorer to use the 192.x.x.x connection?

As an FYI....
Just out of curiousity, why?

You can change the metric on the WIFI interface , but that's an "All or Nothing" scenario to force the use of a second network interface. . I am pretty sure you cannot customize it by application.....

The why is that when i download anything, I kill our WAN.

Yea, looks like building route tables is the only way but that opens up the world to my laptop with a bridge.

guess I will have to create a proxy server with a firewall.

No it's impossible to point IE for use a gateway.

You must use only your wireless connection. Create a route on your wireless gateway (all adress begenning by 10.x. use the gateway 10.x.x.x). The wireless gateway and the other gateway must be on the same network.
