I have been trying to connect my pi to the internet for many hours now and to no avail. (I am on Windows 8.1) I have went through many tutorials, so far I have tried:
- Turning my wifi internet connecting sharing
- Adding the lines ip = 169.254.137.10 (aritrary ip for my pi) :: 169.254.137.1 (my computer's ip address) to \boot\cmdline.txt. It is interesting to note that once I do this and the above step, I am no longer able to SSH into the pi. I am able to use ifconfig to get my pi's ip address and it says the ethernet is connected but the internet just does not work. I can ping 188.8.131.52 although I am not sure exactly what that does.
- Lastly, I tried bridging my wifi and ethernet connection.
