I have an old install of Ubuntu 10.04, and I want to make it a router. I have a phone with 3g tethered to my computer via usb, and want to connect a Vonage box with ethernet.

Nexus 4 ---------->> COMPUTER --------------->> Vonage

The network works on the internet, but vonage is unable to access the internet right now.

Please help!

EDIT: Here is the result of ifconfig -a:

I have tried many things already. tried editing /etc/network/interfaces and enabled forwarding. it doesn't work. –  lolzies Apr 11 at 3:27
