get an internet connection from my Android (tethering). How ?


i have an Android device that I want to it to supply internet connection to my netbook, I am using the tethering option in the Android device, the internet connection to the Android is through the cellular company.
Basically when I have had Ubuntu installed on my netbook I was able to do that very easly, just by selecting the Android device through the network manager. Now that I have Arch Linux installed I am want to do it too, so I Need to find what settings I should put in my Arch, I can see that useful is detecting it, but I don't know how to make it as a network node (or whatever I should do).

my computer system is Arch linux, and the phone is Android 2.3.3.
