I have WiFi on my laptop and only Ethernet for a connection on my Pi. I want to use ICS (Internet Connection Sharing) on my laptop so that I can connect to the Internet.
I can't use the TV in the living room where I could connect the Ethernet cable to the cable box. I don't have a WiFi adapter for the Pi so I am left with ICS but I keep getting the error that the automatic IP address is in use and the fixes that I have read are very complex sets of instructions which I am unable to make heads nor tails of and I fix laptops and mobile devices for a living I am not a networking specialist.
What I need:
So I need a simple (if that's possible) solution to be able to either bridge (without having two WiFi adapters, which would make this point mute) the wired and WiFi together or some way of sharing my WiFi with ethernet. Can someone help me with this?
