    Question hostapd or alternative way to create wifi hotspot for ubuntu 12.10

    Hello all,

    I have a wired pppoe connection, which I want to share on my smartphone and other laptops.

    I installed hostapd, but it didn't work.

    I got these errors:
    Configuration file: hostapd.conf
    nl80211: 'nl80211' generic netlink not found
    Failed to initialize driver 'nl80211'

    Please suggest me some alternative ways to create wifi hotspot from Ubuntu.

    Thanks and Regards,
    Ravi

    Belongs in 'Networking & Wireless'. Gurus there are far better able to help.
