If you turn on the 'share this connection' option in Vista (It should be
somewhere in the properties for your dialup connection) that should work.
You might need to turn off any firewall settings that are blocking the
enternet connection from Vista. You shouldn't need to change any of the
settings in Linux (unless you already changed them, in which case you want
to set the 'wired connection' back to either 'roaming' or 'DHCP'

Thanks for all the good advise. You are all right, I am flogging a dead
horse trying to get this internal PCI Modem working in my machine with
Could i instead of trying to get Ubuntu to talk with my pci modem, try
and establish an internet connection through my Windows Vista Laptop
via. my ethernet card and a 100Mb switch?
The switch shows there is a connection between the two machines, as yet
I have not configured a network as I don't know how.
By and by, does anyone want my PCI modem? It works fine with Vista, and
I'll give it away, heck, Ill even post it to you for free just to get
rid of the thing....
