It is rather easy to get access to the whole internet over the USB interface cable provided that your laptop/PC has internet access.

If you're running Linux you can follow these instructions.

If you're running Windows Derrek Molloy has some advices on this page.

On the BBB create this file and make it executable

echo "Starting the Internet-over-USB script"
/sbin/route add default gw
grep -q /etc/resolv.conf
if [ "$?" -ne "0" ]; then
        echo "nameserver" >> /etc/resolv.conf
/usr/sbin/ntpdate -b -s -u
echo "End of the settings script"

At first login on the BBB execute this script as root (or use sudo). Or you may want to set this script up so it will be executed at boot time.
