Hi,

I'm trying to share my internet connection with other computers with the wifi device (my laptop is connected to the internet via ethernet).

The problem I've got is that once I create the new wireless connection that is going to be shared, my laptop doesn't connect to it. Here is the video:

And I followed these two guides:
http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/how-to-easily-share-your-wireless-connection-in-ubuntu-9-10/
http://www.somgnu.cat/2009/12/22/com-compartir-la-nostra-connexio-a-internet/

As you can see, the difference between the two guides is that in the first one, the device used to share the connection is the ethernet card while in the second one is the wireless device.

So, what's the reason because it doesn't connect to the new connection?.

Thanks!
