Windows to RasPi Internet Connection Sharing

| 0 persons flung their shoes
One of the cons of Raspberry Pi is that it comes without a built-in wifi card. If you do not have a wifi dongle that works with Raspberry Pi out of the box, what your are left with is to connect it through a ethernet cable (or compile yourself a driver for your non-compatible wifi dongle, as discussed here). However, for my case, my internet router is located far away from my Raspberry Pi. So the next best thing I can do is to hook it to a laptop using an ethernet cable, and use a shared internet connection.

Here's how to turn it on in Windows 7 and above.
