I am trying to make a hotspot in Lubuntu. The problem is that I can't seem to connect to it. after creating the hotspot how do I activate it? Do I click on "Connect to Hidden Wireless Network" ? I followed this guide, http://freshtutorial.com/create-your-own-wifi-hotspot-in-ubuntu-11-10/ with no success.
Open the main menu, then Preferences->Network Connections.
Select the Network that you want to share, in this case the wifi network that you created. Then click the Edit... button.
Choose Shared to other computers on the IPv4 tab
and Ignore on the IPv6 tab.
Click Save... button on the Editing dialog, and then the Close button on the Network Connections dialog.
Sharing internet is a simple task Let us assume that wlan0 is the source and eth0 is the host which in turn connected to a LAN (which does not have internet connection). Here we need to share the internet connection from wlan0 to eth0.
Now your internet is shared.....
