Added pictures and descriptions received from student for how to set up internet connection on the Raspberry Pi on a Windows computer running Windows 7 or 10.

#### Step 1 for Windows - enable "internet sharing over ethernet"
This was only tested on Windows 7 and Windows 10. Pictures are included from Windows 7 below. The instructions should presumably be similar for other versions. If not, a google search should hopefully provide necessary details.
This has not yet been tested on Windows, but presumably a google search for you version of Windows will provide good guidance.
**(a)** Windows 7: Open Network Connections (easiest way is to right click on the internet symbol in the taskbar -> Network and Sharing Center -> Click Change Adapter Settings in the left menu).
Windows 10: "Network and internet settings" and "Change adapter options" instead of "Network and sharing center" and "change adapter settings" as in Windows.
<br>
**(b)** Windows 7: Right click on the wifi adapter and then click properties -> Sharing tab -> Check both boxes and pick the Ethernet Adapter in the drop-down menu.
Windows 10: There isn't a drop down, which adapter to share to is handled automatically (this could be because there was only one other adapter).

#### Step 3 for Windows - Find the IP address of the RaspberryPi
This has not yet been tested on Windows, but presumably a google search for you version of Windows will provide good guidance on how to find the broadcast address of the network that is created for sharing internet over the ethernet port of your computer.
This was only tested on Windows 7 and Windows 10. Pictures are included from Windows 7 below. The instructions should presumably be similar for other versions. If not, a google search should hopefully provide necessary details.
**(a)** Connect the Ethernet cable directly between the Raspberry Pi and the computer -> open cmd (windows button -> 'cmd' -> enter)
<br>
**(b)** Run ```ipconfig``` and remember the ip address of the Ethernet adapter
<br>
**(c)** Run ```arp -a``` and look at the results for the ip corresponding to the Ethernet adapter. The Raspberry Pi should be the first ip in these results. On Windows 7 it is likely to be an ip with dynamic type. (If there are multiple, try them in your browser until you find the right one).
