I am using an RPi 2 with Debian Wheezy Release Date 2015-2-16 with kernel version 3.18 (This is the latest version available on the official website).
I work at a research lab where I have to connect to LAN to access the internet.
The settings that I enter in my Windows 7 laptop are the following: IP Address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway,Preferred DNS server and Alternate DNS server [These settings can be changed at Control Panel->Network and Internet->Network Connections->Local Area Connection->Properties->Internet Protocol Version 4(TCP/IPv4)]. Other than these details I also have to input a proxy setting and Port number in Google chrome to finally access the net [Which can be changed from the settings tab in chrome].
I have been doing a lot of reading but have not been able to figure out how to make this work. I have used the following resources:
To configure the IP Address, Subnet Mask, Default Gateway- http://xmodulo.com/configure-ip-address-raspberry-pi.html (I used the Text mode as mentioned in the link)
To configure the DNS servers- https://superuser.com/questions/617796/how-do-i-set-dns-servers-on-raspberry-pi
To configure the Proxy settings- http://mrchrisjbailey.co.uk/2013/03/19/connecting-raspberry-pi-through-school-proxy/
Yet, the browser displays an error and when I try to update the RPi I get an error saying unable to connect to the proxy. These settings and Lan cable are working on my laptop.
I'm new to this, please help!
