With just a fresh install of raspbian, and a network cable, you too can setup your very own Raspberry PI with Internet access. Make sure you have the same physical setup: PI (Ethernet) -> (Ethernet) Computer (Wireless or second Ethernet) -> Internet. Install raspbian onto the SD card. Mount the SD card with write privileges and navigate to the file /etc/network/interfaces and set a static IP. auto eth0 iface eth0 inet static address 10.
