Hi Guys

Thanks for helping with apt-cacher.  Now for an even more difficult

My laptop is connected to the LAN (via cable) and I'm using my cellphone
to connect to the internet for now.  The plan is that apt-cacher can use
my cellphone to get some special updates, while the new pc's on the
network can connect to my laptop through the LAN.

I can connect to the Internet using my cellphone (via usb/rndis) as long
as I'm unplugged from my Lan.  As soon as I plug in the LAN cable, all
internet traffic appears to be routed through the LAN instead and fails,
even though the cellphone is still connected to the Internet.

Is there a way to overcome this?
