I want to share my ethernet connection by wireless. To do that I just select 'use as hotspot option' in network settings. It created a hotspot called Ubuntu that I could connect to with my mobile phone. But after creating the hotspot my computer's internet connection is lost. I looked up eth0's and wlan0's IP addresses using ifconfig command

  • eth0 is
  • wlan0 is

I think there is an ip conflict, because there is another in the cable network. If i can assign another IP to wlan0 I think the problem will be solved. Is there any way to change the hotspot's IP?


There is no such a thing as IP conflict for different Interfaces(networks), if you're using DHCP. You could try finding rfkill on your logs to see if you have a "friend".
