    Howto: Laptop/PC + "Internet via ADSL/PPPOE/DHCP" as "router via WAN" to Tablet

    I have a Huawei MediaPad 7 Youth 2 with Android 4.3. I have a 2G SIM from BSNL, karnataka, and charged it with 2G data plan. The transmission is very slow and I can't install apps. The data network gets disconnected frequently.
    Is there a way to use the PC's broadband internet connection via some way? There is a tethered USB option in my tablet. Can it be used?
    Is there a way to use the PC's wireless networking? To make the PC/Laptop as a wireless router and the tablet use that WAN network?
    There is a post: How to Debian linux act as a router
    Also, there is a debian article, NetworkManager
    Also, another post Debian / Ubuntu Linux: Setup Wireless Access Point (WAP) with Hostapd
    The matter appears beyond my present abilities.
    The articles are conflicting. Moreover, I wish to use the Network Manager applet and to make the PC/Laptop as a wireless router and the tablet use that WAN network.
    Or, any other simple way possible...
    Please note that my internet service provider, BSNL, provides a dynamic IP for my connection plan. Hence, I don't wish to overwrite the files /etc/network/interfaces and sysctl.conf
    Please advise.

    The tab is Huawei Mediapad 7 Youth 2, with Android 4.3. The tab can be connected to a computer using its mini USB port and a USB cable.
    the code:
    Code:
    ip addr show
    yields:
    5: usb0: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qdisc pfifo_fast state UNKNOWN qlen 1000
    link/ether 02:3c:6d:51:04:05 brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff
    inet6 fe80::3c:6dff:fe51:405/64 scope link
    valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever
    This article is of interest: Bridging Network Connections, particularly,
    Code:
     # brctl addbr br0
    and
    Code:
    brctl addif br0 usb0 usb1
    i.e., or something similar, i.e., the usb0 of the first (server) to the second (Huawei).
    I need some guidance.
