Ubuntu: Prevent Ubuntu from recognizing phone as mobile broadband


The WiFi module in my laptop is currently broken and in the meantime I tried to use my phone as a WiFi module. I connect my phone to a WiFi (mobile data is disabled) and plug in my phone to the laptop via USB.

Then I turned on USB tethering. For a while Ubuntu recognizes it as ethernet and internet works. After some time it changes to mobile broadband and internet stops working.

How do I prevent Ubuntu from changing the connection type to mobile broadband?
My phone is a LG-G3.
