    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Have you been able to communicate with the Windows PC yet? In any case, you need to configure your Windows box to be a bridge/router in order to share the connection. I've done that before, but it was a bunch of years ago. We configured my laptop w/ Sprint wireless to do that, and others were able to share the connection. Anyway, Google is your friend... The answer should be on the net, and likely on the Microsoft web site.
