I was wondering how to create a Wireless network with my Macbook (5,5, 2009) using Ubuntu (13.10). I got that tutorial, that use ap-hotspot:


The problem is that my wireless card doesn't support it, at least is that what I got on command line.

This is strange, because in Mac OS I'm able to create an Access Point.

Anyone know if I have to make something different to enable AP mode in Ubuntu?
