I have Dell XPS 15z laptop with
Intel Corporation Centrino Advanced-N 6230 network controller. I have tried creating a WiFi hotspot in Windows using Connectify. It worked fine.
But I am not able to create WiFi access point in Ubuntu.
When I create it using common method like going to network manage and click Use as a Hotspot My android phone doesn't even detect it. I have also tried creating a network using hostapd but it gives be following error:
nl80211: Failed to set interface wlan0 into AP mode nl80211 driver initialization failed.
I would really appreciate some help here to how to create WiFi access point in this case?
