I'm not sure about how to do this without clobbering NM, but it is possible to run automatically at boot and get IP addresses to assign easily (at least I have managed this with the same wireless card). This requires the packages hostapd and dnsmasq (not dnsmasq-base) /etc/hostapd/hostapd.conf: interface=wlan0 driver=nl80211 # This works on my TL-WN722N ...

From here you add wireless-mode ad-hoc to your interface definition auto wlan0 iface wlan0 inet static address 192.168.1.1 netmask 255.255.255.0 wireless-channel 1 wireless-essid MYNETWORK wireless-mode ad-hoc

One approach may get you information about the devices recently transferring data to and from your computer over your network: arp -a -i interfacename This should work on any type of network, not just ad-hoc ones, but since it displays a cache value it only displays devices used fairly recently. It will display the IP addresses and their unique MAC ...

Click on NetworkManager icon in the tray. Press 'Manage Connections' Go to Wireless Tab Press 'Add...' button but choose 'Shared' Everything is ready, I've connected to this connection from the network manager but I dont know if that is important.

Your lshw output says that the brcmsmac driver is being used. AP support is one of the TO-DO features for this driver, so this probably means that, unless some other driver (from Broadcom?) offers the AP feature under Linux, you likely can't create APs under Linux with your card.

I know that under 10.04 you had to go and manually change the mode of the network in the Ubuntu network settings to Ad-hoc, I've not used WiFi on 12.04 but is this the same issue? UPDATE: OK, I've not got wireless installed on my Ubuntu box just now. However, if you click on the up/down arrow in the info bar at the top of the screen.. Then "Edit ...

Most trouble occurs because of the Broadcom drivers in HP Laptops at least. If you have a broadcom network controller Check if your card is compatible with b43(link 1). If it is, awesome, keep reading. The default Broadcom sta driver (wl) will not support access point mode. So install b43 taking precautionary measure to be online by any means necessary. Turn ...

I think your laptop is connected to internet via a wired connection. So what you have to do is forward packets from wireless card to Ethernet card (or whatever you have) in the laptop. In order to do that, [wlan0 - wireless card; eth0 - ethernet card] Create an ad-hoc network and give it an ip address by ifconfig wlan0 10.0.0.1 Enable ip_forward by echo 1 ...

yes you can open network manger from the right side in the panel then click edit connection you will see all connection choose wireless and click add new set everything like ssd and password then go to ipv4 setting make the method "share to other computer"

I used the Hotspot Mobile app by Motorola and with that I could connect to the Android wireless tether using Ubuntu. You have to configure the Hotspot Mobile app preferably setting a password and Ubuntu will recognize it immediately and let you connect. I used Defy with Android 2.2 and Ubuntu 11.10. If you still have problems, here is the Ubuntu official ...

Have you tried reinstalling NetworkManager? If you can connect via ethernet — because, naturally, removing NetworkManager would disconnect you — try: sudo apt-get -y purge network-manager sudo apt-get -y install network-manager I have had problems with NetworkManager in the past, and therefore use wicd most of the time. However, it does not have ...

After a not so merry go round of purging network manager and reinstalling restarting, logging in and out about twice, deleting all networks, and trying again... The maintainer told me it was ipv6. I set it to ignore and the network sticks :D!

If you are on 11.10, edit the network and set ipv6 to be ignored:

I have upgraded to 12.04 Precise Pangolin and it is now working great. Haven't been able to spot the initial issue, but with this upgrade, it dosen't matter now.

I am running Ubuntu 12.10 and at first I couldn't connect to my friends Windows 7 Ad Hoc with the default settings that Ubuntu used. Ubuntu detected that it was an Ad Hoc network and other settings. I could always "reach" the network, even with an WPA2 password, it only contained 8 characters. When I tried to connect it was trying for a while and then ...

Most wireless hotspots created using a wireless adapter are not true "infrastructure" access points but are "ad-hoc" peer-to-peer networks. Unfortunately, as the error indicates, the Kindle does not support ad-hoc or enterprise networks, only the "infrastructure" kind which is usually created with a wireless router or wireless access point.

The kind of security options (X)Ubuntu makes available for setting up an ad-hoc network depend on your wireless card. Some support WEP-only, others WPA and others none. Ubuntu relies on the requirements relayed by the wireless card driver, and there's no way to force an "unsupported" method without modifying the network-manager source code. If you are ...

You need a wifi chip that supports host mode for that. Sadly most of them don't. If you can verify that yours supports host mode take a look into hostapd. There are several tutorials available. As alternative there are some apps in the play store that claim to be able to connect to ad-hoc networks. Those need at last android 4 and root access. A lot of ...

Click on the Networking indicator. Choose "Create new wireless network" (or something similar, on my Ubuntu's it's translated to my language) Type in wireless name/password. Note that such network will have access to the Internet only if your Ubuntu is connected to it via other means (e.g. wire), for a single wi-fi antenna cannot work as hotspot while ...

I'm not answering the question, but I can't post comment yet. Sorry for that. Do you know that WEP is completely broken? You'd better not encrypt anything: it will be as efficient to protect you and you won't have any user/password problem. You can try to set up a WPA ad-hoc connection using: ap_scan=2 network={ ssid="MySSID" mode=1 freq=2412 ...

I've managed so far, but I don't know if that's the ideal solution. Anyhow, it might be useful enough for someone else: I created a wired internet-share connection (click on the network icon on the top left corner of the screen -> edit connections... -> Wired tab -> Add -> IPv4 settings -> Method -> Shared to other computers; also made sure that the box ...

This document should explain everything you need to know. (https://help.ubuntu.com/12.04/ubuntu-help/net-wired-connect.html). Someone has asked this question similar to this, I don't know if it is what you're looking for exactly, but here's the link to it How do I share my wireless connection via a wired cable? I hope that helped you.

I am currently working on a laptop with the same wireless network card, which functions well. So, let's start digging... My advice is not to use the STA propriety driver, but the open source brcmsmac. This should be included in recent kernels. As you said and as I can see in your screenshot, your WiFi setting is set to Ad-hoc. I believe that should be ...
