(Its a humble request to not close down this thread)
OS - Ubuntu 14.04
Android Phone - Samsung Galaxy S3(flashed it with CM13)
Laptop - HP-ENVY (Model : 6-1002TX)
I created a hotspot on ubuntu using 2 ways:
Edit Connections->Wifi(change IPv4 to shared)->change mode to ap.
Using Ubuntu's in-built option. System Settings->Network->Use as hotspot(ad-hoc).
- Phone detects the hotspot when 1st way is followed. Problem is I won't get sufficient speed although my laptop has high speed connection.
- Phone doesn't detect hotspot at all. I ping the IP(ifconfig wlan0) that is assigned to wlan0, output is normal.
I know android phones don't have ad-hoc support. Already tried all solutions to enable ad-hoc support.I guess its a problem with wifi drivers. Here is the info about network interfaces.
