angstrom connect to internet

I am trying to share the internet with the beaglebone black(angstrom os) from my laptop. Here is what I tried till now-

  1. I connected beaglebone black to my laptop running windows 7 via USB cable. Then, I went to network and sharing center. Then, the network which I want to share, I shared it with the Beaglebone(It says Local Area Connection). Now, I went to the Gate one SSH on beaglebone and wrote - “ping”. But it said “Unknown Host”.

  2. Any help will be greatly appreciated. If there is any other method to accomplish this, please tell me about it. I have tried most of the tutorial on internet, but didn’t succeed.

    Thank you.
