      How to setup a wifi-hotspot in Ubuntu: The terminal way.

      Ubuntu has a "Use as hotspot" mode. But it creates a n ad-hoc network only.Wireless hotspots aren't same as ad hoc networks. Significant difference is there. In short, ad hoc networks aren't supported in most Android, Windows Phone and Blackberry devices (and may be iOS devices too) whereas AP mode Wi-Fi hotspots are.

                    It is really simple and easy to setup a hotspot in Ubuntu. We use a tool called ap-hotspot. To install it open a terminal and type the following:

      sudo add-apt-repository ppa:nilarimogard/webupd8 sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install ap-hotspot
                   Next, to start the hotspot type the following in a terminal:
      sudo ap-hotspot start
      It asks you which adapter's internet you want to share, name of the network, password, etc. in an interactive manner. To stop the hotspot type the following n the terminal :
      sudo ap-hotspot stop
      To configure it type the following in the terminal :
      sudo ap-hotspot configure
