No, what he said was clear to me.  He knows both interfaces work because
he's tried each of them in turn.  Of course, when he did that, each one was
automatically configured by DHCP in his router, and the other one would
have been unconfigured.

For his setup to work, he needs to either run a DHCP server on the
downstream i/f (usually his eth1) or set up that i/f with a static IP (or
probably both so his 'phone thing gets an address).

Or he could put the hub between his upstream i/f and the router, and put
the 'phone on the hub, but he doesn't want to do that.
