Actually it's saying Packets: X, Errors: Y (0 errors on the output you pasted)

Also, I'm not sure about what ASU does by default, but have you checked the default route?  The 'gateway' line in /etc/network/interfaces should be under usb0, and you should see it when you run 'ip route show' (default via ADDRESS dev usb0).  Google should also be able to provide you more information about how to set and examine default routes.

If it's a freerunner, you may also want to consider getting it on a wireless network for simplicity's sake.
