I have finish flashing Raspbian to my sd card and I edited the config.txt and cmdline.txt files and added an ssh file. Then I connected my pi to my computer via usb. I used putty to login and everything worked. I am trying to update and install everything for vnc to use the graphical desktop but I cannot do that without internet connection. I am having a really hard time connecting to the internet. Here is my ifconfig script.

    You need to EDIT your question and add details such as how you will connect to the internet (via a router, via a dedicated link). Which device are you going to use for the connection, USB or wireless? How have you set up the IP addresses (WLAN has no address) etc. Have you followed the basic tutorials from raspberrypi.org ? – joan Sep 27 '17 at 19:02

You need to setup your wifi details in wpa_supplicant.conf and drop it into your /boot folder. Boot, then restart.

In the wpa_supplicant.conf

ctrl_interface=DIR=/var/run/wpa_supplicant GROUP=netdev
update_config=1
country=AU
network={
ssid="NetworkName"
psk="password"
key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
}
#fake network workaround for headless Raspberry Pi Zero
network={
ssid="fakessid"
psk="fakepass"
key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
}

Alternatively you could use an open source tool I have developed for this exact problem.
