    Exclamation How to setup a wifi hotspot in Dell Vostro using ubuntu 12.04 & Broadcom Wireless LAN

    Hi, I need your help in setting-up my laptop to be a wifi hotspot. I already followed some tutorial but I still did not succeed. Im using a Dell vostro laptop and a Broadcom Wireless LAN controller. Here are some info that may help

    Code:
    lspci
    Code:
    12:00.0 Network Controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4313 802.11b/g/n Wireless LAN Controller (rev 01)
    Code:
    iwconfig
    Code:
    wlan0  IEEE 802.11bgn ESSID:off/any
                 Mode:Managed  Access Point: Not-Associated   Tx-Power=0 dBm
                 Retry  long limit:7   RTS thr:off   Fragment thr:off
                 Encryption key:off
                 Power Management:on
    Code:
    iw list
    Code:
    Supported interface modes:
                   * managed
                   * monitor
    This is a dual boot system - Windows 7 and Ubuntu 12.04. I tried installing Connectify in Windows and it did work but when i tried the hotspot in Ubuntu I wasn't able to broadcast any signal. Can my LAN accommodate such setup?

    Any help will be highly appreciated. I really need some. Thanks in advance

    I already figured out how this should work.

    I installed a driver using the following steps:
    System Settings > Additional Drivers > Broadcom STA wireless driver > enable button (below) > Restart laptop

    It changed my "wlan0" to "eth1". and then I followed the steps here.

    Hope this helps
