Just change the ip of your usb0 interface!! Now both your ethernet card eth0 and your usb interface usb0 have the same ip. That's not what I said.

These two interfaces should reside in different networks. Your eth0 is connected to your home network, your usb0 ist connected to your "Kindle-Network". You have to assign a home network ip to your eth0 interface and a "Kindle-Network" ip to your usb0 interface.

Edit: And most likely you have an dhcp server that assigns an ip address to your eth0 interface - just don't touch that interface. We ware always talking about usb0 and nothing else!

And also make sure you restarted your kindle after you edited the usbnetwork file (change of ip address).

The result should look like this:

Code:
ifconfig
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:50:8d:b6:e0:e3
