I'm trying to create a Hotspot (not ad-hoc) with my rooted Commando so I can connect it to my N7 and can't get it to work. Any suggested apps/tricks?

I'm using 12.10 on a Samsung Q45 laptop and cannot connect to one specific wifi hotspot where I work. This is the only hotspot that I cannot connect to. Every other hotspot I can connect to without any problem. If I use my Win7 Pro (64bit) laptop with my work hotspot then it connects immediately. Nobody else (they all use windows) has any problems connecting to the work hotspot.
As many of you know, most of our android(not only android) devices can't connect to ad hoc hotspots. There's a solution for win7/8 users to set up infrastructure hotspot on their laptop using software like connectify and so on. Ubuntu also allows to create wifi hotspot to share internet, but it will be ad hoc one.
So here's the guide how to set up infrastructure hotspot on ubuntu 12.04/12.10.
I just want to know, can the nexus 7 connect to a hotspot at all? I have a virgin mobile HTC one V, and before I pay $15 for hotspot, I want to know if it will work. Someone told me my phone sets up an ad hoc network, and the nexus 7 cannot connect to these.
My company pays for the Verizon hotspot feature in my Rezound. A few days ago I rooted the phone and flashed the ICS 4.03.605.2 Global RUU and then flashed the Business_ICS4.0.3_Sense3.6-v6.4 ROM. Everything seems to work great except that my paid mobile hotspot has stopped working.
