Trying to connect my new Raspberry Pi to the internet for the first time. The Raspi is connected via a cross-over cable to the LAN port of my laptop. The laptop port is then bridged with the laptop's wi-fi using the Win7 built-in network bridge and so should be sharing the internet access in theory.
When using the Raspi browser, it works for any internal network webservers but won't receive anything from the WAN using either URL or ip address. I get a name resolution failure and a fail to load page when attempting anything destined for the WAN.
I'm thinking it must be router related as it only fails if going through the gateway router.
Any ideas what the issue might be and how to resolve it?
