Is there a way to share an Internet connection from PC (wlan0 interface) with an Android Phone connected through USB (usb0 interface with usb-tethering)? I guess it's possible with squid, but I don't know anything about squid. I'm using froyo & Ubuntu 11.04 so please guide me.

Can your phone tether with you Android? If so, you can access the wi-fi from your phone. It should be in the settings, networking/wireless.
