Kindle 3 USB Networking

I want Kindle3 use PC's shared internet connection through USB.
Reason: the WiFi only Kinlde3 I got has a broken wifi module.
http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=102138

Already installed jb and usbNetwork in the Kindle 3 successfully.
I can telnet into the kindle from my PC. I shared the internet connection in the PC.

After set the default gw and dns server, I can ping google.com from the kindle3.

But I still cannot use the browser and cannot connect to the kindle shop.

I checked other threads about usb networking, they are about K2 and DX. Something need to config, bu K3 is different, it doesn't have "/opt/amazon/ebook/config/browser_prefs".

Any other config should I do to let my kindle browse through usb network?

You should call CS about the WiFi issue. Amazon is very liberal about replacing Kindles if there is a problem.

It's a pity that I am in China now. Ship back to Amazon is almost impossible.
I have to think other ways to use network. Maybe "usbNetwork" is good for me.
