    Impossible. You can arrange an order of preference for your network connections in your network preferences, but you cannot specify per program.

    The only thing I can think of is to make a separate user. Set that user's preferences to use your DSL connection via airport and browse on that user only. Use fast user switching. That's the only workaround I can think of. :confused:
