It's been a *long* time since I used Trumpet (sure you can't just 
bail WfWG?) but if I recall, the Trumpet stack only supports the 
winsock.dll for dialup connections by default.  According to the 
readme, you can use it for TCP/IP over a LAN, but you need to load 
the NIC packet drivers.  You may have to download the old Crynwr 
packet driver package; I'm not sure if it comes with the Trumpet 
winsock package or not.  Good Luck.
