comment How to activate reverse tethering on CentOS 5
@slm azilink-app sounds good. I already thought about using adb for this. I can propably be done via commandline, too - I will look into that - it will help achieve my goal, but does not answer my q. Mabe I will delve into the change log of the above mentioned modules later on...

@slm that Q is about co6. So the version of the kernel driver seems to be important indeed.

@slm Yes I did try. I suspect that there is something more or newer in Ubuntu.
