I'm running Ubuntu 13.10 64b on a Dell Inspiron N5010.
My wireless device (found using

I bought a new android phone and want to connect to Internet by using the laptop as a Wireless Access Point (ad-hoc doesn't work with Android).
I tried following tutorials like the one at How to setup an Access Point mode Wi-Fi Hotspot?. The relevant output from
iw list was

eth1 is the wireless, verified by
Failed to create interface mon.eth1: -95 (Operation not supported) Could not set channel for kernel driver eth1: Unable to setup interface. Could not connect to kernel driver.
I am able to use Connectify and Virtualrouter on Windows, and the phone works great. How do I get an access point running on Ubuntu? I'm open to other alternatives as well.
