Running Wireless modem card on LAN


Hello Guys,
This modem card (Sierra Wireless Aircard 555) is connected and activated to a desktop with XP sp2.
I have now established a Ethernet LAN, with SAMBA, with this desktop and one Thinkpad 600 notebook running Linux Mandriva 10.1 OE. I would like to use this modem from my Thinkpad running Linux.

On the back of the card is some information:
Sierra Wireless, Inc. CDMA 2000
FCCID: N7NACRD555
Canada: 2417292170A,2417332334A
Part# 1200470 and 3 bar-codes as follows:
E03020901398015
09900122450
6301DE52

I don't know which ship-set it is. Waiting for response from the manufacturer.

The Card is multifunction and can also be used as a phone. I will only use it for Internet in linux.

Anybody using this card?
Can anybody give some clues, advice on how to proceed.

well the googling that i did brought me this info..
the chipset as i can find runs on the MSM5105 Chipset from qualcomm. i couldn't find anything that spacifically stated that fact as #1 i don't have the initiative to run thru every hit i get on different combinations of sierra+aircard+555+linux+chipset and #2 i have that kind of time right now.
the second thing i found was this site. Sierra Wireless AirCard 555 for linux this was the first thing i found when looking up your card. go figure... The second hit on google.
i hope that this helps...

oh... and i did a hcl check on LQ and mandrivalinux.com and didn't find either the chipset listed or the sierra company name. good luck... i hope that the second link helps.

I can confirm that the chip-set is:
AC555 uses Qualcomm MSM5105 chipset

I want to share this internet connection. I have turned on "Allow other network users to
connect through this computer's internet connection" in "Network connection"

I have tried to run the web browser but after a long time the browser give up and return "cannot find the website"

I have extracted some lines from messages which I believe have impact on the issue.

As a newbie I don't understand enough to pinpoint what the error is.

Please, some one have a clue on how to proceed??
