Sharing WiFi Internet connection with Raspberry Pi through LAN/Ethernet (Headless Mode)

Update 29th Dec, 2016: If you’re using the latest PIXEL Image, please make sure you enable the SSH Server by placing a a file named as ssh in the boot directory before trying any of the following methods. The SSH Server on boot has been disabled in the latest Raspbian image as a security measure. Read more about it here: https://www.raspberrypi.org/blog/a-security-update-for-raspbian-pixel/

Update 9th July, 2016: I’m inspired by this method https://www.raspberrypi.org/blog/programming-pi-zero-usb of SSHing into a Pi through the USB only and gonna tinker and see if we can get to also share Internet over to the Pi using only the USB. (No more messy LAN Cable 🙂 ). If you get it working, please share.

Update 10th July, 2016: I’m afraid, I won’t be able to get the above method running on a Pi 2/3 as it’s only supposed to work on a Pi Zero. If you have a Pi Zero and are interested in Sharing WiFi over USB, please check out http://blog.gbaman.info/?p=791#comment-136336
