USB tethering between Ubuntu and Android phone

This post is the continuation of my previous post on tethering. This post is a step by step to connect your Ubuntu (AMD 64) with internet using easytether and android phone. You can get EasyTether in Android shop.

1. Goto http://www.mobile-stream.com/easytether/android.html and download your driver.

2. Install the driver

Easytether installation in Ubuntu

3. Make sure USB debug is enabled. Easytether says that is very important. In my Xperia X10 mini, I have the menu flow like Settings>Applications>Development and connect the phone to PC via USB.

4. Connect the phone in USB

5. Open the terminal and issue the following commands

bhavani@bhavani:~$ sudo easytether enumerate
[sudo] password for bhavani:
43423531314C31345243
bhavani@bhavani:~$ sudo easytether connect
connection established
run ‘sudo dhclient easytether0’ to configure the network interface
press Ctrl-C to disconnect

I tried to configure easytether0 network interface. So I kept the persent console open and issued the following command in a new console window.

bhavani@bhavani:~$ sudo dhclient easytether0
[sudo] password for bhavani:
