Forget the description beneath. Let me ask it in an other way.
I have a ubuntu pc, a wireless router and an android tablet IN THE JUNGLE. No internet what so ever, just a wireless signal from my router.
How can I set this up that I have a permanent link (share) between the pc and tablet. The pc shares to the tablet and the tablet to the pc.
Should I wire the pc to the router on the wan port or the lan port ? ( as mentioned on the net for extending ethernet through an AP on an existing wireless network) Is this just a samba/ssh mather ?
I tried a lot but just couldn't make it work. Pinging works most of the time but every other attemps gives me "host unreacheble".
What follows was the first formulation of the question :
I would like to connect an android phone/tablet to my Ubuntu pc in my car.
Having a spare router I though of making a local wireless network. All the info on the net is about turning the spare router into an access point of a existing Ethernet connection.
In my case the spare router is not connected to the Ethernet wire but directly onto a network port on my pc. In my car I have mobile Ethernet, I have been able to share this connection through the router to broadcast internet to my android phone. I also have a wireless network card ( no master mode possible) to connect my ubuntu pc to wireless networks at work and at home ( car is not moving).
Is there a set-up where you can communicate with a router directly attached to the network card on a Linux pc ?
What it could be used for : sharing music library for xbmc yatse controller in car. This works as a charm at home but not once you're out of range of the wireless network.
Any help would be very appreciated
Thanks in advance.
