I am very new to ubuntu . I am using ubuntu 14.04.01 and i am using a wifi connection and i don't have a lan connection. I want to create a wifi hotspot using this connection. I searched on sites but i only get the methods to create it with lan.

I tried http://ubuntuhandbook.org/index.php/2014/02/wifi-hotspot-ubuntu-laptop-android/

thanks in advance.

  • Which connection do you want hotspot to be created from? – Raphael Dec 26 '15 at 9:17
  • @Raphael i want hotspot to be created from wifi. – Shubham Dec 26 '15 at 9:32

Go to settings and click on Network

Go to Settings

Now click on Wireless(if not already selected) and then click on "Use as Hotspot"(below list of available networks)

Click on wireless

Click on use as Hotspot

Click on turn on (It may ask for name, password, encryption type etc. if you haven't ever used it.)

Hotspot menu

This method works for me...
