Without more info is hard to say. It could be simply be that the default driver for this wifi card in ubuntu is not great. In the past what has worked for me is to find and install the newest linux driver for the wifi card you I'm using. If you provide your wifi card details it will be easier for more people to chime in.

That error is reporting that your particular wifi hardware doesn't support operating as a hotspot. There's nothing you can do in software to correct it, you can only replace the hardware (though it would probably cost about the same to buy a cheap wifi router).

This is confirmed as working on Ubuntu 14.04 32-bit. The laptop I fixed is 32-bit, and it won't run Ubuntu 14.10.

The encryption used by your wifi router/access point is the issue, from your post iwlwifi 0000:03:00.0 wlan0: disabling HT/VHT due to WEP/TKIP use so you need to eliminate WEP/TKIP from the encryption setting on the wifi router if you can. What you want is WPA2-PSK or WPA2-AES only with no WEP or TKIP as they are older and not as secure
