How to set up reverse tethering over USB?
Is there a way to do this?
I'm trying to reverse tether my Android phone. I'd like it to use my PC connection. Many guides on the net say that I should root my phone, but I don't want to do that.
What I would like to happen:
- connect Android to the Internet via wireless
- attach to PC via USB, in "tethering usb mode"
- PC is already connected to the Internet in another way (cable)
- when I disconnect the wireless connection on the Android phone, then the Android phone uses the connection of my PC
With no internet connection on my phone I can't connect successfully to the PC. So, I'd like to know if there is a way to let the Android device believe it is connected to the Internet.
I'm using Ubuntu 11.04
