Upgrade to full internet on PiZero using USB networking

If you’ve followed  http://simplesi.net/walkthru-of-getting-networking-between-pc-using-pizero-via-usb/ or used the torrent image http://simplesi.net/pizero-usb-networking-torrent/

then you may want to upgrade your install to full internet access from PiZero via your PC

To do this -1st off – we need to change IP address on PiZero.

Use Putty and connect to PiZero using 169.254.64.64 then

sudo nano /boot/cmdline.txt and change IP to ip=192.168.137.2:::255.255.255.0

Enable Internet Connection Sharing on main internet facing network connection on your PC http://windows.microsoft.com/en-gb/windows/using-internet-connection-sharing#1TC=windows-7

Kill Putty session – unplug – replug USB – give it a few moments to sort itself out

Connect using Putty to 192.168.137.2 – say yes to dialog box

Enjoy 🙂
