How to connect internet in Rpi

Sun Dec 22, 2013 4:00 am

Hi all,
I am a beginner in Raspberry pi. I am using my TV as raspberry pi display, a USB keyboard and monitor. I want to use internet in my Rpi. I don't have wifi connection. I have a laptop with Win 7 and internet connection, an ethernet cable.

Can I connect Rpi with Laptop in order to share internet connection. If there is any possibility, please reply me.

Thanks in advance

What you need is an ethernet switch with 3 or more sockets. You plug the internet in one, your PC in another, and the Raspberry Pi in the third. I've got a 4 port one from TP-link that was £7 / $10
