There is a way to direct network traffic over USB if you are hooked up and using ADB on the host. I made it work so,e time ago for a project, but don't recall the details off-hand.

Look around in some of the other forums for other Android devices, it isn't specific to the Nexus 7 at all. You will see a lot of threads about trying to tether a PC to a phone over USB, to use the cellular network, but there are some discussions about using it in reverse too.

CM10 supports tethering, however WPA/WPA2 tethering was broken on devices with bcmdhd wifi until I fixed it earlier this week. Some devices may not have the fix enabled yet (It has to be enabled on a per-device basis, since the "fix" will break devices that don't need it.)

If you have a device that doesn't have the fix yet, try setting the security to "Open" until your device has the fix pulled in.

I can confirm foxfi works flawlessly also. That app is amazing. Plus it allows tether at higher speeds than normal. Even better than wireless tether app.

I have my N7 connected to my Galaxy S2 HSPA+ connection with a stock WPA2 encrypted wifi tether. It works blisteringly silky smooth.

I have a Samsung Galaxy S II and it doesn't work. So what do I have to do to receive this fix?

Hey Entropy512, mind sharing what change needs to be made on the device side to get native WiFi tethering working with the bcmdhd driver?

Have VZW (CDMA carrier) unlimited 3G data plan on the unlocked, rooted HTC Droid Incredible 2 running Skyraider custom rom, came with WiFi Hotspot or Tethering App, runs great - using WPA2 mode - works great with iPad, (retired) Viewsonic Vpad7 and now N7 when I'm at places or mobile with no WiFi access otherwise.

Newer custom Roms have issues with tethering app, but I have 1 or 2 other alternate ones that also work - so the HTC serve as the hotspot for the N7, sometimes alongside with the iPad - not burning a lot of data on the network so it's all good.
