These links might help;

To share the connection you'll need a router (though you can set up Internet Connection Sharing from the desktop PC if you have two network cards).

If you take the laptop away from home the speed of your connection is down to the other network(s) you connect to, nothing to do with what you pay for at home.

Perhaps Canon themselves will have an answer, can't find anything relating to it on the forum and their Vista drivers are circa 2006, so you probably have the latest. click here(59246),TemplateSet=Canon_SServe_Cust,Question=ref(SEK):::CSCBNSSBNJ,Question=ref(UT):::EU1,varset_lang=en,varset_country=UK,VARSET_URLLOC=self-service.canon-europe.com/uk/pages/ss_Layout.cgi,VARSET_ExitWin=Exit&LANG=en

Seems you need to register, or have done so before but I did manage to find a form you could use to ask for assistance (without logging in). Unfortunately TinyURL won't reduce https: links
