    Last time I checked it was not possible to share a WiFi connection. Once you create your hotspot in managed mode, you loose your current WiFi connection. You need another Internet connection. See here: howtogeek.com/116409/… – January Jul 10 '13 at 9:19

It is simple just click on your wifi icon and then create a new wifi network. Put name and password.

But it only works if your laptop is connect to a dongle or a wired connection.

  • You could have an ftp server, but you might need to be connected to an existing network. – Andres Sep 16 '15 at 6:24
