I've two laptop and I want to create a Hotspot to share network and internet connection. Currently I'm using Ubuntu 13.10 and uname is:

Linux vinay-Vostro-1550 3.11.0-13-generic #20-Ubuntu SMP
Wed Oct 23 07:38:26 UTC 2013 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Ad-Hoc hotspot was working till Ubuntu 12.04, later Ubuntu 12.*.* this is screwing...

There is also lots of network problem with all later version since 12.*.*

Is there any alternate solution or patch to create Hotspot and share network?

Depends on your wireless driver - mine for instance (wl) allows Ad-Hoc but never works beyond broadcasting an SSID –  Gant Nov 11 '13 at 12:04
