Ubuntu – Create a wifi hotspot using the desktop


My desktop has a fast wired connection and I would like to set up a sort of "wifi hotspot" that allows mobile devices to connect to my pc and share this fast connection. How would I go about doing this?

The easiest way is creating an Ad-Hoc network. It's really simple (if your hardware drivers support it).

  1. Click the Network Manager applet
  2. Click Create New Wireless Network...
  3. Give it a name. Set the security.
  4. Connect to it from your other devices!
