You can access Internet at a time one card may be wireless (wifi) interface or ethernet. card.

If you want through wireless interface (i.e through mobile station) that time you should create bridge between ethernet card(eth0) and wireless interface(ath0).

ifconfig ath0 0.0.0.0 
ifconfig eth0 0.0.0.0
brctl addbr br0
brctl addif br0 eth0
brctl addif br0 ath0
ifconfig br0 up

Now your mobile will get IP address, you can access Internet successfully but your system (desktop) is not able to use Internet. If you want then need to destroy bridge.

ifconfig br0 down
brctl delbr br0
