With some testing of enabling/disabling usbnet and playing with /etc/dnsmasq.palm.conf as per the USBnet page, it seems that these steps are no longer needed to get USB tethering working. As a result I'm removing this section. Sgonzalez
I've been working with the developers of freeTether and getting their insight/blessing on the wiki content. Please consult the developers if you feel that some of the content is not needed in your opinion before removing the content. I understand that wikis are editable for the public, but consideration has to be taken into account whether or not people other than some need that content for help such is the case with setting up USBNet.
The USBnet section is needed for some users that do not know how to get it working. If it works for you out of the box, then there you can just skip that part. Why do you think it does not need to be there?
