You checked the subnet of your eth0 interface? It is 255.255.0.0. . That means your computer thinks the ip range 192.168.0.0 - 192.168.255.255 is behind your eth0 interface.

Now I would recommend using ip address like 10.0.0.* for your "Kindle" Network.

So change the addresses in the usbnetwork file to 10.0.0.1 and 10.0.0.2 and assign your usb0 interface the address 10.0.0.1. Now try to telnet to 10.0.0.2.

well the subnet was like that because I thought the HOST had to be 192.168.2.1. In sure you can see my confusion in the documentation and posts on this forum saying HOST should be 192.168.2.x. Why they call it a host i dont know, but its not proper terminology. The host is my computer and if the kindle's config says to enter the name of the Host, I assume it means my computers ip address.

I reverted the subnet back to 255.255.255.0 and tried your suggested method, though I still a no route to host when I try to telnet in to 192.168.2.2.

I am going to try on another linux distro, possibly ubuntu's network manager is messing things up.
