I have an SBC3 with a USB wifi adapter and i need to connect another network device beside it. I'm trying to avoid installing a router. I'm wondering if there is any way to get the SBC to share it's network connection through the builtin ethernet port.

i found an article about bridging networks using bridge-utils on the internet in this link
but when i look at /etc/network/interfaces on the SBC it says that any changes will be overwritten. some input from the SBC/debian gurus would be appreciated.

You could disable the boot-time overwrite of settings by:
