OK.  This feels like it's going to be a dumb questions, but I'm going
to ask it anyway.

Is it possible to leave the USB connection up, so you can work on the
Freerunner via ssh, and at the same time bring up the WIFI?

If so, can be made to work both when routing through the host to the
internet as well as when you're only using ssh as an easier way to
work on the Freerunner.
