Simultaneous connection to LAN and WAN with filters

#1
I'm looking for a software helping me to solve a problem I have in my office network. I have a laptop connected via LAN to local servers, webfarm servers, webfarm and internet. In this network I am behind a proxy that blocks some ports and ips and all the time I have to ask to open them temporary. In our office we also have a wifi router connected to internet without any restriction. So if I want I can disconnect the Lan, connect wifi and go wherever I want.
What I'm looking for is a way (or better a software) that let me to be connected with both interface (lan and wan) at the same time. By default I would use the lan connection. With the software I would like to add filters by IP or domain or port that let me choose some kind of services to use the WAN connection instead. So for example if I want to go to google.it it would use the LAN. But I can add a filter for 8080 port and all the connection to 8080 services would use the WAN. I would use it mainly with web browsers but I would like to use it also for other software like ftp or custom software. To me it looks like a virtual network card. All the connection are handled by this virtual card that send traffic to LAN or WAN depending on filters. I tried looking around but no luck. Do you have any idea on how I can do something like that?
Thanks a lot

Easiest way would be to get a cheap usb wifi adapter to connect to the second network.

The problem is not that I don't have wifi on my laptop. I do have wifi on my laptop but I want to be connected to both LAN and WIFI and use one for certain services and the other for other services

Yes - you can connect to one network with the existing wifi adapter and with a usb wifi adapter you could connect to the second.

I don't have two wifi connection to connect to!
One is a Lan and the other is WIFI

This is exactly what I was asking. Specifically I don't need this kind of difference (youtube on LAN and internet on WAN) but something like: all via LAN. Port 5050 via WIFI. IP 123.123.123.123 via WIFI.
This should be the best.
Otherwise I can also have a software that can link a program to a particoular interface. For example Firefox using LAN, Opera using WAN.
