I have a windows computer connected wirelessly to router and connected to Raspberry Pi (Raspbian Linux) with LAN cable. I need to connect to PPPOE connection and enter my credentials to connect to internet with windows computer and that works fine. But I need to connect to Raspberry Pi to internet through my Windows computer internet connection. I followed some tutorials but can't manage this to work.

1) I set static IP on my windows computer ethernet connection (

2) I shared my PPPOE connection on windows computer

3) I edited /etc/network/interfaces to look like this:

auto lo
iface lo inet loopback
allow-hotplug eth0
iface eth0 inet static


And I can't get internet connection on Raspberry Pi. I can ping my windows computer from raspberry and other other way round but i cant ping google.com or open any internet site... What am I missing?

  • Can your router handle the PPPoE connection? – daxlerod Oct 2 '13 at 18:00
  • No, i must dial it from computer. – speedy051 Oct 2 '13 at 18:00
  • I suggest either 1) Buying a new router that can negotiate a PPPoE connection. or 2) Installing an alternate firmware, like DD-WRT, on your current router that can negotiate a PPPoE connection. – daxlerod Oct 2 '13 at 18:03
  • The router is locked by ISP so I can't change it. I must admit that I had this working some time ago, so it is possible, but now it just doesn't work... Maybe some necessary Windows serivces are stopped? What services are needed for sharing internet? I just can't figure out what has changed since last time I was connecting raspberry to internet... – speedy051 Oct 2 '13 at 18:13
  • Does anyone have some other suggestion for setting some windows/linux options rather than changing the router? – speedy051 Oct 2 '13 at 20:45
