Go to System Preferences, select Sharing, select Internet Sharing from the service list, put a check mark next to Ethernet in the port list, and make sure there is a check mark next to Internet Sharing.
I had a similar problem but then realized I had the sharing setting 'backward' on the mac, I was stupidly sharing the macs ethernet with the Pi, which made no sense when I went to trouble shoot it.PowerHaulJack wrote:Thanks for that. I've connected my Mac upto my Pi, and set up the Mac like you've suggested and that's fine. Now, my Pi still cannot find internet, so I'm thinking I need to do something in the Terminal? Sorry for the questions...
Simple. But not cheap... (Right?)Beerhunter wrote:The simplest solution if the Pi is not near your router is to use a pair of HomePugs.
I was having problems getting my Imac to share its internet access from the Airport thorough the ethernet port to a Raspberry Pi. Thanks for this, it was the solution.oliverhanisch wrote: Opene the mac sharing pane click on "internet sharing" then "ethernet" n the right hand box.
In the network pane the DHCP would not recognize the raspberry even after reconnecting and rebooting.
So I just checked my airport IP address and typed it in the "eithernet"connection pane choosing "Using DHCP with manual address" and voila it showed "eithernet connected" and I had internet on my raspberry pi.
In fact, I am sending all of this through my raspberry right now.
