I have a wired interconnection in my ubuntu laptop. I want to share this connection to my Nexus 7. I tried creating a Ad-hoc connection but N7 doesn't recognise ad-hoc wifi. So I found my old wireless router ( Beetel 450TC1 ) and connected both my laptop and N7. I ran a web server in my laptop and I am able to see it in N7. Now, How do I forward my wired internet connection to N7? I think I must run some proxy server to forward all requests to eth0 interface. Any ideas, how to set this up?
You need some packages and have to configure it: 1. HostAPD 2. DHCP 3. ip masquerading
