 It should work like any other linux machine in this regard... i.e.,
you just need to set your routes 

Now there are a couple of issues you need to think about with regards
to this;
1) on wifi connection, it might actually disconnect you from your
carrier's data network. (I don't know since it is pointless to pay
extra for a carrier data plan given the proliferation of free wifi)
2) the route command doesn't exist on your device. You'll need to
install it.
