How to use your Mac as a bridge network (Guide!)

Sat Feb 02, 2013 9:59 pm

Hello world! its been months since I last came on, so I thought I'd make a guide. Most of you don't have ethernet wired in your house , and your router is far from your pi. So you can't get internet without a wireless adapter? Nope. You can. This guide is for Mac but I am sure you can do it with windows also.

So first off, what do you need? You need an ethernet cable (Any one will do) and a Mac with either a built in ethernet port or with an adapter.

1. Head over to system preferences

2. Click on Sharing

4. Click on Internet Sharing and then Ethernet

5. Go back to System Preferences and click on Network.

6. Click on Ethernet and the Select "Using DHCP with manual address" in the Configure IPv4 tab.

7. Plug in ethernet to your Pi and then head over to root terminal in the pi and type [code]sudo ifup eth0[/code]

8. Enjoy!

Forgot to mention, You also need to type in your IP address, such as 192.168.1.1

Why a manual (static) ip?

I use this method to ssh into my Pi with the internal DHCP server and that works fine. And since there's only one Pi attached to the ethernet port, it gets the same ip every time.
