    Share a wired internet connection to wifi enabled android

    Hello all,

    I've been reading around, but not had much success at all in trying to share the internet connection from my laptop to my phone.

    all the articles i read refer to earlier versions of Ubuntu and the packages they mention have become obsolete, according to the apt-get tool.

    im not that new to Linux, but my networking probably isn't up to scratch.

    if anyone could help me, that would be great, im using Ubuntu 10.04 at the time of writing.


    techevo.

    Here is a help page that might be useful. Near the bottom is a link for wireless.

    Depending on your wireless card, you should be able to do this via the networking applet in your toolbar.

    Some network card drivers in Linux are capable of hosting ad-hoc networks, and some are not. Here's a link with how to configure this via nm-applet (the networking applet in your toolbar). It also has a list of cards that support ad-hoc networking: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs/Adhoc
