Hi there.  

I have a laptop with Windows 7 pro (running on a domain) with a mobile broadband USB stick that I use occasionally when away from the office.  I need to loan my computer to another staff member to use away from the office with the mobile broadband stick as well.  I have logged in successfully as that user on the laptop, but I can't see the mobile connection to dial.  

I am not sure whether I need to somehow share the connection from my user to the new user or enable some permissions (the new user is not a domain admin like I am).  Perhaps I need to set up the connection from scratch as the new user.

Thanks for your help.
