I've tried to run Ubuntu from Live CD to check it. Ubuntu recognized my android's hotspot (I use android 2.1 with "Wifi Tethering") but wasn't able to connect to it.

It's really a problem for me because I don't have any other internet connection.

Do you know why?

I made bad experiences with the built-in tethering-configs as well. But there is an app-solution that works well, the app is free.

Free wifi tethering app "Open Garden"

Works well for me.

Note: I am root on my phone, i don't know how well the provided non-root tethering works. Just set up your connection options and try browsing ;]

Thanks. I've tried open garden and it didn't work (I have root). I've understand sometime that ubuntu 12.04 can't connect to any ad-hoc network. Then I upgraded to 12.10 beta and the problem was solved! –  Tsvi999 Oct 3 '12 at 10:21
