Thank you. I followed your suggestion. I edited the file: /etc/systemd/network/usb0.network and then I did a 'reboot'.
It seems to work, but when I run: configure_edison --showWiFiIP, I get 192.168.2.8, rather than 192.168.99.8. Also, I ssh to 192.168.2.8, not the updated address. Is this right?

So the edit you did moved it to someplace (personally as long as it is not ..2. I don't care. So then once it is out of the way, your DHCP server will assign your Edison an appropriate address, which is what you are seeing.
