urndis man page says it provides support for Ethernet access over Remote 
NDIS. Is that what you want? Or do you want to use your phone's 3(/4)g 

I tether my phone to my laptop in the sense that I use it as a modem for 
my laptop when I don't have access to wifi or ethernet. I connect the 
two with a USB cable and use ppp. The laptop is then using the phone's 
3g connection.

If that's what you want see the handbook:

Sorry if that's off message.
