I am attempting to set up my rpi3b to share an internet connection from wifi to the ethernet port. I followed some instructions found here:

Sharing the Pi's WiFi connection through the Ethernet port

Specifically, I used the script posted by Arpit Agarwal, from the first answer under the subhead "Updated for Raspbian Stretch". After following these instructions, I found that the machine I was trying to connect to the pi was successfully able to establish a connection. There was no internet access, however. Puzzled, I looked to the Raspberry Pi and found that where there would normally be a dropdown menu for wifi in the GUI, there was a new icon with the message "No wireless interfaces found."

I have updated/upgraded the device to make sure everything is up to date (before this problem ensued), and I have done my best to reverse what I did, but the problem persists. Any advice on what might have gone wrong and how I should tackle this issue would be greatly appreciated.

  • This might have something to do with the fact that the author of the link chose to ignore the warning "# Please note that this file is written to be used with dhcpcd # For static IP, consult /etc/dhcpcd.conf and 'man dhcpcd.conf'" You would be better starting with the Foundation guide Access Point – Milliways Apr 27 at 4:27
