With just an IP set, you can only ping the other end and stuff on that network. To connect to other networks via it, you also need to set up a route. (and DNS to use names).

Having two internet connections complicates things. Disable your eth0 first, then play with usb0. If your phone offers DHCP, you can do via cli what vinnie wrote above, udhcpc is the bundled dhcp client.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.

Hi jbbum
Maybe you need to add routing information. When setting up  eth0  you execute a command similar to:
Code: [Select]
route add default gw 192.168.1.1so that  eth0  knows how to reach the outside world. You may have to do something similar using the cell phones
IP address as a gateway.

5) select dhcp
Or maybe you need to do something with dhcp.

Got that problem solved.  After the "ifconfig.............up" statement from previous to bring the usb0 interface up, doing "sudo dhclient usb0" allowed access.  Can now "ping -I usb0 8.8.8.8" and get a result.    In the process of trying to enable packet forwarding to bridge the wireless ap and usb0.

I apologize.  The command is "sudo dhcpcd usb0" not dhclient.
