I connect my Windows 7 to the Internet via USB tethering to my Android.

How can I connect my Linux box to the internet.

  • the Linux box has only NIC.
  • I have a 4 port hub available.

Its clumsy, but you could connect (assuming you have the cables for the hub) the windows computer and the linux box and share the connection from the windows box. I'm am sure there is a better way though.
