I was able to do this entirely via network manager by creating a new "Wireless (shared)" connection which defaulted to Ad-Hoc mode. This should probably suffice if you're trying to use your laptop as a repeater for other devices. Don't forget to set your WiFi security to "WPA/WPA2 Personal" and set a secure key. You might see two different versions of the ...
