    What you're looking for is called USB Reverse Tethering.

    I am trying to do that on my HTC Desire myself. No luck so far..

    Couple of resources reg ppl claiming to have done it on other phones (rooted - will void warranty). None of them worked unfortunately.

    a) Requires Rooting - Tried, Can't execute the last command to set the DHCP of usb0 as it requires root.

    b) Isn't clear if it requires rooting - Doesn't work (strange!)

    c) Some other tablet Android which has an external Ethernet adapter - although might only work with particular model.

    d) Yet to try
