This question already has an answer here:
I have an old laptop which currently runs WindowsXP.
I have got recently an Android phone with just WiFi. Now I want to use my laptop as bridge (via WiFi), so that I can connect from my Android to internet through laptop.
Because WindowsXP does not support Access Point (AP) mode, I can't use it with android.
I'm thinking of installing Ubuntu on the laptop. Will it work? And how to do it?
Here are the specs of the laptop.
