    Creating a Wifi hotspot other than adhoc to connect to android.its keep connecting

    Looking for working solution to share my linux internet over wifi with my android galaxy ace.
    I have linux mint 13. And i m trying to create a wifi hotspot. It creates and connects only to adhoc. but android galaxy ace doesnt detect adhoc connections. and linux doesn't connect to any other type of connection. when we create wireless connection to infrastructure mode it keep connecting nothing happens. any help?

    I did it on my atrix you should be able to also if you are using at&t. I cant remember how i did it off hand but you connect to something else not adhoc. If your interested i can see how mine is set up.

    Other problem is. When i create a wireless connection it connects only for single time. and when i disconnect it moves to hidden networks menu.
    i have followed the following steps:
    1. from network manager create a new wireless connection
    2. entered ssid and password
    3. selected security as wep 128 bit
    4. it get connected...
    5. but doesnt detected by my android phone. while on windows i set security to WPA2 and it is detected..i have used connectify on windows
