I've read this article before, and carefully followed the instruction that it porvided.And I am sure wireless card in my laptop support going into wireless access point mode. But unfortunately, when I use the following command to start hostapd service, I got
sudo service hostapd stop Starting advanced IEEE 802.11 management hostapd [fail]
Since I am not familiar with Ubuntu(or linux), I can't figure out what happened and how to fix it. The instrution mentioned above said possibly because my wireless card does not support the g mode, and provided the wiki of hostapd. But what is g mode ? I tried to swtich to a ,or b mode, but it just didn't work.
Can anyone help ? or provide a tool like connectify in windows ? thanks!
ps. I am using ubuntu 12.04, 32 bit. I have an ADSL wired network, and I want to share it by setting my laptop into a WiFi hotspot with my windows phone.
