hello. i have searched repeatedly to no avail and apologize if i have simply missed it. i am looking for information on how to set up my laptop (running ubuntu 10.04) as a wireless access point for other wireless computers, through a mobile broadband usb device.

my reason for wanting to do this: i have a mobile broadband verizon usb device for connecting to the internet when a regular wifi connection is not available. however, my wife does not, and it would be nice if she could use her wifi to connect to my laptop wifi and subsequently share my mobile broadband connection.

independently, i have no problems with wireless connectivity using wifi or mobile broadband, i am simply unable to figure out how to configure the two to work together in such a way as to create a wireless access point via my laptop.

thanks in a advance!
