I have already looked at the other posts on this topic however none of them seem to work. I have a raspberry Pi0W, running the latest Raspbian stretch lite (2017-09-07), connected to my laptop over USB and would like to be able to connect to the internet on the pi (to run updates and install packages). (My laptop is running windows 10)
I can ssh into the pi (using PUTTY and the address raspberrypi.local) but even after sharing my connection (rebooting both) or bridging the connection (and rebooting) I still can not connect to the internet.
Running 'ifconfig -a' gives:

And running 'sudo route -n' gives:
Kernel IP routing table Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface 0.0.0.0 192.168.7.1 0.0.0.0 UG 0 0 0 usb0 192.168.7.0 0.0.0.0 255.255.255.0 U 0 0 0 usb0
and when I run 'ping www.google.com':
ping: www.google.com: Temporary failure in name resolution
As for my laptop, I have updated the RNDIS drivers and want to allow the Ethernet connection (USB to pi) to access my Wifi Connection (wifi to my router). I have not changed much in the way of configuration other than the sharing tab of my wifi and when I tried to bridge the connections (I deleted the network bridge afterwards).
Any help would be greatly appreciated and I hope is is just me being silly and missing something, thanks in advance.
