Can I direct Firefox directly to wireless modem AND keep W10 workgroup on wired ethernet?

We have a W10 workgroup using an unmanaged switch to hook 5 PC's together through hardwire ethernet. The switch is also the access point to the internet "modem".

I would like to cause the PCs to use wifi to access the modem ONLY for internet and Thunderbird, with the workgroup remaining on the wired system.

With both "networks" enabled in W10 the PCs are automatically defaulting to whichever method was enabled 1st. I have no idea how or if I can "split" the flow and cause FF and Tbird ONLY to use wifi.

From what I found online, windows defaults to 1 connection only. But you can force firefox into using specific card using force bind ip tool: https://superuser.com/questions/1369902/how-to-force-an-application-to-use-a-specific-network-card There is gui version too: https://sourceforge.net/projects/forcebindip-gui/

I did not use it myself so I cannot help you with config but it seems pretty easy - just choose app and network card. Create 2 rules (firefox and thunderbird) and voila!
