    wireless and wired networking at the same time?

    I'm at work with my own laptop.
    I want to get online with my wireless network...no problem, done. BUT,
    I also need to go to a specific web site that must be done through my works network. (wired)
    Can I have a specific web address or web site use a specific network (the wired one) and still have certain other sites use my wireless network at the same time?

    How?

    If I correctly understand what you're saying, you should be able to use a home-made VPN to use your wireless connection to connect through to your work's connection. The only thing, you'd have to leave a computer connected to the work network running the VPN software(Hamachi?) Of course, this is all in theory...

    Well, here's the thing. The WiFi connection is real slow, so I prefer to use the wired connection and must use the wired connection to get to this specific web site.
    On the other hand, my work blocks internet radio and my Magicjack phone, so I need to use the WiFi for those.

    I've tried to do the same thing, but have yet to figure it out; It always defaults to just one connection (the wire one I beleive).

    Probably a stupid question, but can't you just disconnect from the wifi and switch back and forth that way? It will go to the wired connection once you switch off the wifi, wont it?

    I can't, I need both connections at the same time.
    Also, I have to disable the WiFi network in order to use the wired network

    You'll have to use routes. You'll have to add a static entry for each website you want to access thru the wired network, if your wireless NIC is set as the default gateway. Otherwise, reverse it (if your wired nic is the default gateway, static routes for accessing thru wireless). You'll have to do it via IP address, so if the site/service you need access to uses multiple IPs, you'll have to set them all in the routing table.

    or you can possibly use a VmWare, if you have access to the software.
    not sure if that is what you want, but it's an option.
