Ubuntu – How to set up Ubuntu as wireless accesspoint

networkingserverwirelesswireless-access-point

How can I set up my WiFi to be used as wireless access point on Ubuntu Server?

I have a local Ubuntu Server, it has a wireless card in it (802.11a/b/g/n) and I really want to set it up as an 802.11n access point since my normal access point does not support N.

It needs to work as a switch as well so I can connect and get DHPC through.

Edit: I don't see Network Manager as a good solution since it depends on a lot of X11 packages, and i don't want that on a server.

I found a good thread. It should work in Ubuntu 10.04 no problem. Also it is CLI so it doesn't need any X libs at all. :)
