I have an Ubuntu desktop that I want connected to the Internet; the built-in WLAN adapter is broken, so I'd like to connect it to my main Windows desktop that does have a working WLAN adapter via an Ethernet cable to share the Internet connection.
I read that the easiest way to share Internet using an Ethernet cable is to bridge the Ethernet adapter and WLAN adapter on the main computer, and that was done easily enough on Windows. However, the Ubuntu desktop can't connect to the Internet after connecting it to the Windows desktop. Windows shows the Ethernet adapter as being 'not connected', but is sending (but not recieving) packets. Ubuntu seems to recognise the Ethernet cable as being plugged in, but it won't get past showing 'Requesting an ethernet network address for 'Wired Connection 1'...".
What should I do to make this work?
Windows ipconfig results
Ubuntu ifconfig results
