I want to create an infrastructure hot-spot using ubuntu 12.10 as I want use internet on my android phone by creating an infrastructure hot-spot.I have tried to change the setting the hot-spot and make it infrastructure but it did not help and my android could not discover the hot-spot......... Any help would be appreciated..........
You can use
ap-hotspot from the
webupd8 repository to create an infrastracture AP instead of adhoc. I am using this on Ubuntu Precise (12.04), but it is available for Saucy, Raring and Quantal as well.
$ sudo su - # add-apt-repository ppa:nilarimogard/webupd8 # aptitude update # aptitude install ap-hotspot # ap-hotspot configure # ap-hotspot start
Some times the clients of this wifi do not get IP from dhcp. You can fix it by killing dnsmasq (it starts again automatically).
# killall dnsmasq
I faced similar problem while configuring hotspot on my android phone. Following link was pretty helpful for me in this: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2009381
