Is it possible somehow to share internet from eth0 to wlan0 with Network Manager? Is there any new (updated) how to for this? All howtos that i can find are old... One more thing, i hate firestarter and i don't wont use it for internet sharing

This is god howto but i can't use network manager with this tutorial... I need network manager because i work on several networks.
What i need is: I have internet trough ethernet cable. Now i want to create wireless network for other computers to have internet.

Did you notice the wireless (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs/ShareEthernetConnectionThroughWireless) link at the end of Kobalt's link?

The problem with this, and many similar howtos, is that it doesn't mention how to set everything up with a WPA2 wifi network. And noone wants to set up a WEP network in a town (or at least I hope they don't), you have no idea who'll be reading your traffic. Isn't security one of the reasons people move to linux in the first place?
