    I want to share WiFi connection via WiFi. Say, I am connecting to hot.A WiFi hotspot with comp.A and I want to share this connection(hot.A) by create WiFi hotspot in the same computer(comp.A) which is connecting to hot.A.

    How can I achive this in Ubuntu 12.04 LTS 64-bit?

    This can easily done by the app called Connectify in Windows 7.

    At the very bottom clarify how you can do this with one card.

    Be aware that no all Wireless cards supports this mode with Linux drivers. Some does, some don't and some does with extra or propietary drivers.


    I never have done it, so post if back if you could do it.

    Hello, thanks for the answer. I found this is a feature in Windows 7. Connectify just uses that feature and makes it more easily.

    Ubuntu on the other hand, doesn't have this feature by default. The link you provide is too advance for me to understand. And compared to one click enabled in Windows 7, I think I will let it be in Ubuntu.
