I have a Raspberry Pi directly connected to my Windows laptop through Ethernet, so I can make a SSH connection with PuTTy, everything works fine except that my Pi has no access to the internet.
Whenever I enable "Internet Connection Sharing" option on my Wi-Fi adapter of my laptop (Windows), my laptop immediately disconnects from my Pi and I will not be able to connect again. Unless I disable the "Internet Connection Sharing" option.
The operating system installed on my Pi is: Raspbian Wheezy, Kernel version: 3.12. I also have given my Raspberry Pi a static IP address by adding an IP address in the cmdline.txt file and also by adjusting the /etc/network/interfaces file.
My core questions is:
Why do I get a disconnected? and how can I get internet access on my Pi with direct Ethernet connection to my laptop?
