Creating linux wifi hotspot to share pc internet with android galaxy ace, dsnt detect

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?

when i try ifconfig it displays the following:

# ifconfig
