comment Connecting Android 4 (Ice Cream Sandwich / Jelly Bean / KitKat) phone
Does this work if the wifi network is a hotspot created by the phone? What about if it's a hotspot created by the PC?

comment Connecting Android 4 (Ice Cream Sandwich / Jelly Bean / KitKat) phone
Tried this with ubuntu 12.04.3 + SGH-I747M. Couldn't see files that were not picture-type files (.jpg, .png, etc.). The root of each card (internal & external SD card) contained a bazillion folders, I think a copy of every subfolder in the heirarchy, plus extra ones with weird hexadecimal extensions. Picture files from subdirectories were also displayed at the root, but couldn't be viewed. They could be viewed at their actual location. File transfers to the phone seemed okay, though overwriting a file would a) make its directory look blank and b) create two copies, $FILENAME.dup[01].

I found that GVFS couldn't create files on my GT-I747M S3. I initially had this problem using the PPA under 12.04, and later when running the 12.10 amd64 Desktop live DVD. However, go-mtpfs can do writes properly, and speeds are well above 10MB/s for both reads and writes.

Will this break any pre-existing uses of dsnmasq?

comment Creating an infrastructure hotspot using ubuntu 12.10
I found that my S3 couldn't get assigned an IP address. I used ifconfig to check the address of the hotspot and assigned a static address to my phone based on that; it filled in the Google DNS 8.8.8.8 and 4.4.4.4 for me.

comment How to make an android phone use a wi-fi hotspot created on ubuntu
Do you mean that official android distributions are capable of connecting to ad-hoc networks but only if the device is rooted? Or is there a way of connecting to an ad-hoc network using a non-rooted phone that doesn't use the wifi list?

comment how to find out if my card supports infrastructure mode?
Hmm.. I see AP as well as AP/VLAN in the list of Supported Interface Modes. However, trying to set the mode to master as per @The Terminator's answer gives error message indicating that it doesn't support infrastructure mode.
