Geekmaster I don't understand your post and I've read it several times now. What is a "usb network interface"? And more specifically what is it called and how do I access it in Windows 7? How do I assign IP addresses on the USB network? And how does it differ from assigning IP addresses on the network as a whole?
In Windows 7 there is exactly one place for networks and all network are displayed there. And I cannot change the IP address for my home network, that has to be set automatically else I lose my internet connection (I tried it anyway and it didn't change anything).
I have this problem that even setting the IP address for the rdnis gadget, checking ipconfig it shows that it completely ignored my settings. If I ssh into what the IP should be, it times out. If I ssh into what ipconfig tells me the address is, the connection is immediately refused.
