If this is the case, what you want to do is set the ethernet connection

provide connectivity.  Essentially, Internet Connection Sharing with the
WWAN connection as the ISP and the ethernet connection as the local LAN.

A very timely post, Dan - while not the original poster, I've just had
need of that advice, thanks to a failing wifi adapter on my desktop

It's not a long-term fix, but for now, I've got internet access working
again by routing it through an old laptop... much cleaner than with my
first attempt which used iptables directly...
