LXer: Turn your Linux computer in a wireless access point using hostapd

Published at LXer:

A few weeks ago I was living in accommodation that provided internet access via a wired router. This obviously meant no wireless access for some of my devices. This was especially bad for my Nexus One phone which because of the lack of wireless received all data via mobile network causing me to go over my fair usage policy! Also have you ever tried sharing one ethernet cable with your girlfriend/boyfriend, it doesn’t work. This was quite irritating so I decided I would try to turn my netbook into a wireless access point (AP).
