    Setting up Wifi Hot Spot

    Hello friend ,
    I am using Ubuntu 12.04. I want to set up Wifi Hot spot. So that I can use my broadband connection on my cell phone anywhere in the room.
    I tried various links to make Wifi hotspot on. But I couldn't succeed. Can anyone help me in it ?
    I am using SeventhGate software to use wifi on Win 7 successfully.
    Thank you.

    You broadband but you can't set an access point on the router? Does the router not have wireless?

    Have you checked the network settings? In linux mint, there is a button that says "use as hotspot" in the network setting page. I believe there is a similar option in ubuntu.

    I'm not sure it does. I can't check ATM
    But yes, it does exist in Mint and for me too in openSUSE 13.1 Gnome

    Give me a sec and I'll go check my netbook
