We know that Android L Preview release have same issues : One of this is Wifi/USB Tethering not works.

I find on xda a temporary fix for this issue (thanks buraktamturk)

I simply done a shell script that give you and install the default gateway ip for your active data connection.
So every time you active a new data connection and you must done a tethering Wifi/USB condivision,
remember to run before this script.

Whats you need for make it work.

Your device must be rooted and you must have busybox installated link:

Install Root Explorer from play store (is not free)

You need it for execute (you can also use terminal emulator even if you need more steps)

Download and Unzip the script attached and save it on your Nexus5 folder (i.e. /system) and give permission rwx (read-write-execute) with root explorer apk. (or chmod 777 with terminal emulator)

After that every time you start a new data connection done this steps:

1. Run with Root exlorer apk
2. Enable and disable tethering ; After that re-enable it. (this step is important otherwise dhcp server is not started - internal bug from Android L preview)

Now your USB or WIFI tethering connection would be work.
