double laptop as a wifi hotspot
I use fedora 17.
I was trying to go through the following article to setup a wifi hotspot:
The first two things they've asked to try out I've tried and sharing the output here:
$ lspci -k | grep -A 3 -i "network"
02:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation Centrino Wireless-N 130 (rev 34)
Subsystem: Intel Corporation Centrino Wireless-N 130 BGN
Kernel driver in use: iwlwifi
03:00.0 Ethernet controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8111/8168B PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet controller (rev 06)
$ modinfo iwlwifi | grep 'depend'
Does this mean I cannot configure my hostapd? Is there an alternative way of setting up a wifi hotspot?
