Windows 7: Two NICs; one LAN, one WAN...How do I get programs to "prefer" one?

Two NICs; one LAN, one WAN...How do I get programs to "prefer" one?

So I have crappy Internet access in the middle of nowhere, but at least I have my phone's unlimited data plan, 4G, and rooted hotspot access So I use my ethernet connection for LAN access, including my NAS, and frequently use my wireless connection for WAN access.

Is there a way to force applications to use one or the other, or something like that? I set default gateways (View Network Connections > Right Click > Properties > IPv4 > Advanced), but it didn't seem to help much.
