Sure this has been covered many times but the few previous posts on here I went through didn't help.
I'm using the Pi to use my Pi headless, accessing it through SSH on my Win7 desktop. I connected the Pi to my router and all was fine and dandy, expect the router is downstairs. I went through a couple of tutorials and explanations on how to set up my pi to connect to my PC through an ethernet cable. I have got to the point where I can access my Pi with SSH with it directly connected to the PC. Great! But I don't have internet access on the pi, which although not vital, would be useful for updates and downloading packages etc. Can someone point out where i've gone wrong with my set-up?
If useful, here is my ifconfig and interfaces files:
