not sure if it's an Android question but ...

I connect my win7 to the Inet via USB tethering. I wonder if and how I can connect my linux box to the net. It can be done only via ethernet.

This question came from our site for enthusiasts and power users of the Android operating system.

This sounds like a Linux/Windows question rather than an Android one, to be honest. The USB tethering should just be like any other network adapter to the Windows box, I'd imagine. I will say, though, that you'll need a crossover cable (or adapter) to go the ethernet route. – eldarerathis May 31 '11 at 23:32
@Matthew: I think (emphasis on "think" here) that he wants to tether internet to a Win7 machine, then share the internet from the Win7 machine to the Linux machine via an ethernet cable. That's how I read the title, anyhow. – eldarerathis May 31 '11 at 23:53
@eldarerathis is right.... I said I wasn't sure if it was an Android question.... – Radek Jun 1 '11 at 0:14
Which version of Android you have? – Pitto Jun 1 '11 at 10:50
@Pitto: I am on 2.3.3. I created new questions on SU before this one was migrated… My original question was based on hope that I wouldn't have to do "anything" on windows machine.... – Radek Jun 1 '11 at 23:18
