Thanks for your help.

  • That's not how networking works. And as far as i know you can't tell firefox or chromium which interface to use. – meccooll Oct 29 '16 at 5:20
  • However, what you can do is "bond" the two connections together so you get the combined bandwith of both of them: askubuntu.com/questions/158679/…. However, why do you want to do this ? Maybe there is another, better, way to achieve what you want. – JonasCz Oct 29 '16 at 5:59
  • I need that because in my office they manager all network in lan. So i want using my phone like hotspot and using it for private work. But i know a little about linux and i was think i can do it in linux. :D Thanks for your help. – Hữu Tuấn Anh Oct 29 '16 at 15:23
  • You can design a device specific firewall with the -i option of the firewall iptables so that going to certain site would only use your wifi connection. A "DROP" policy can be set for ethernet with iptables -i eth0 -P INPUT DROP; iptables -o eth0 -P OUTPUT DROP and ip of sites be accepted as exception to the default drop rule with iptables -A INPUT -s <IP> -j DROP;iptables -A OUTPUT -d <IP> -j DROP – user123456 Oct 31 '16 at 22:57
