    Exclamation 11.04 Create new wirelles network, and share 3g internet

    Hi

    I just started using Linux last week.

    Intro
    I want to be able to share my 3g internet on a wireless network

    Problem

    When ever I create a network, with the network manager (adhoc), the network does not show up on any of my other devices (iPhone, Macbook Pro or iPad). However the network manager has no problem listing SSIDs in my neighborhood.


    Info
    - I have no problem connecting to the internet with my 3g modem
    - I have no problem creating a new wireless network, called X
    - I cannot see X on any other device

    I have googled this issue and not been able to find an answer to my problem. I also searched this forum but have been unable to find a solution so far.
    Thank you for your time in advance.

    the device needs to support an ad hoc connection, i dont know personally about your devices, you will need to find out.

    My android and my daughters android can connect to mine (not that i use it) but set it up in the past to see it working.

    Re: 11.04 Create new wirelles network, and share 3g internet

    I checked "iwconfig" which told me
    wlan() IEEE 802.11bgn ESSID:"X"
    Mode: AD-Hoc Frequency:2.412 Ghz Cell 12:34:56:78:90:00
    Tx-Power=17 dRm
    Retry long limit: 7 RTS thr: off Fragment thr: off
    Power Management: off

    So it seems to me that it does support adhoc, or am I mistaken?
    Thank you for your reply

    I mean your device needs to support ad-hoc connections, i know your machine supports it cos it lets you set them up.

    Your device needs to support it. If the device cannot see the connection, try entering the details of the connection manually into the device

    Ah okay, well I have been trying both with my mac, iPad and iPhone. And they usually support ad-hoc network. So if it does support ad-hoc, what can I do?

    I found that the computor that is the adhoc wireless, has to connect to the adhoc 1st, mine is always a hidden network, I have found that more times than not the wireless device is starting in managed mode not adhoc mode,

    I might have misunderstood something, but as far as I know the mac products support Ad-hoc networking.

    did you setup the connection manually ? which was what i said in the last part.

    I'm not saying this will work but might, and it was the last part i said which you didnt say if you tried or not.

    Ah sorry, I get it now. I entered the information manually and it didn't work.
