As far as I know, there are two options for setting up the Raspbian OS on Raspberry Pi:
- Connect it via HDMI to a display, via USB to a keyboard and a mouse then you install the OS via the SD card, similar to what you would do it on a PC
- Connect the RPi to the laptop via Ethernet and you install the OS via SSH
I also tried to connect the RPi directly to the router via Ethernet, hoping that it will connect to the network and then I can SSH to it, but the RPi lights under the Ethernet port did not light up.
I was wondering if there are other options, because in my case, right now, the first option is not doable because I don't have a keyboard, and the second option is not doable because the laptop does not have an Ethernet port and I am not able to get one right now.
