my experience is: wicd sucks royally!
and recommending to change a most likely unrelated piece of software is
probably not going to help much.
for the op:
what exactly did you do?
is the name server set correctly (check /etc/resolv.conf on the fr)?
does pinging an ip (not a name) work?
that's the ip of heise.de, a german news portal.
if it works, name resolution is broken, copy yout host's /etc/resolv.conf
to the fr.
for normal forwarding i got in my host's /etc/network/interfaces
iface usb0 inet static
post-up iptables -A POSTROUTING -t nat -j MASQUERADE -s
post-up echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward
post-up iptables -P FORWARD ACCEPT
check the logs, if error messages are displayed or simply try
iptables -A POSTROUTING -t nat -j MASQUERADE -s 192.168.0.0/24
echo 1 > /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forward
iptables -P FORWARD ACCEPT
and see if messages are printed.
