possible to use wifi and usb networking at the same time? (qtmoko)

Thats a bug in QtMoko's network setup, it seems to take full control
of the kernel's networking setup without asking the kernel what
networks are setup already and should remain. It also needs to be
aware that not all network interfaces are managed by the QtMoko
network UI.

You can work around it by starting the USB network from a terminal
after starting the WiFi. Run ifup usb0 if using ifupdown for the USB
connection (which is the default on Debian). That will give you two
default routes because ifupdown also doesn't pay attention to existing
kernel network state, but you will still be able to login. If USB is
not connected or not forwarding connections then you may need to
delete the extra default route to connect to the Internet though:

ip route del default via dev usb0
