I'll dump some common info here, but I would love a step by step, from scratch on how I can create a network bridge between my Raspberry Pi (running Raspbian) and Laptop (Windows 7 with LAN and WiFi) to allow internet access to both and SSH between my RPi and laptop.
I want to share internet connection from WiFi to RPi using LAN port.
I'd prefer my RPi having a static ip, for SSH'ing purposes, but using DHCP if it's easier is fine.
I'm using default
auto lo iface lo inet loopback auto eth0 allow-hotplug eth0 iface eth0 inet manual auto wlan0 allow-hotplug wlan0 iface wlan0 inet manual wpa-conf /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf auto wlan1 allow-hotplug wlan1 iface wlan1 inet manual wpa-conf /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf
rpi: ping 126.96.36.199 -> connect: Network is unreachable rpi: ping laptopIP -> connect: Network is unreachable rpi hostname -I -> 169.254.229.14 laptop ping 169.254.229.14 -> works laptop ssh 169.254.229.14 -> works laptop ipconfig -> Wireless->IPv4: 188.8.131.52 Subnet: 255.255.255.0 Default Gateway: 192.168.0.1 LAN->IPv4: 169.254.244.255
I tried previously the other day, and my RPi was on the network with address of
192.168.0.103 and it had internet access, but after a reboot it didn't work again. So I've reset everything, to try again.
I'll update with any more info that is needed.
RPi: Latest Raspbian
Laptop: Windows 7 (64 bit)
