    Exclamation Ad Hoc not working - (network isn't created for public access)

    Hello,

    Today I was creating an Ad Hoc network for sharing internet connection and I realized it is not working... I have done it before on Ubuntu 10.10, now on 11.04 it just doesn't work. I create a new connection (Create New Wireless Network) and it is never visible to the other computers (I checked the IPv4 settings, it was Shared to Other Computers).

    I really do not know what is going on, my wireless card is working perfectly fine (I can connect to other network and on additional driver it is there with a green circle)...

    Any help will be welcome!

    Thank you

    Since nobody seems to know what is wrong I will close this topic very soon.

    I have found the same problem, I found that the machine with the Ad hoc connection had tp be connected to the connection which was hiddden. When the connection was made it was then visible on the network.

    Hi. This may sound like a dumb Question!!!
    But did you Reboot? After Create New Wireless Network.

    If you check lwconfig when you start the machine I suspect the wlan will say MODE MANAGED and not MODE ADHOC. It is starting in the wrong mode.
