Wiflyer help

I bought a Wiflyer on Ebay because I am stuck with dial-up and I wanted my new laptop to connect wirelessly. I have one question. When I want to connect to the internet with just the laptop you can hear it dialing up but it doesn't connect. The only way it will connect is when my desktop is all ready on and connected to the internet. I thought the desktop did not have to be on for the laptop to connect. Any info would be great. Thanks

What I've managed to find about it on Google, it does appear to be a combined "Dialup Modem & Router" and as such should allow either computer to get online independently of the other.

When you have both computers online, what IP addresses does each one have?

Ideally, can you also post the full details from running IPCONFIG /ALL in a Command Prompt window in the PC?
