I would like to create a WLAN with my android, so I can use it with my notebook and the tablet could use the internet of the notebook. I know that there is connectify at windows that does that. I tought that using the button "use as hotspot" would work but he opens a ad-hoc hotspot, not a true hotspot, so my android cannot recognize the connection.
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.
Greetings to all you One S owners.
Can someone help me with a small problem. I cannot get the One S to act as a WiFi Hotspot. Knowing me I'm doing something wrong, so any advice would be much appreciated as I need to use the hotspot with my laptop. This is what I am doing.
1. Clicking on Settings.
2. In wireless and networks clicking on more.
3. Clicking on Portable Hotspot and tethering.
