Hi,
I want to share my wired internet connection with other systems in my home over wifi
How do i do it?
changing the wifi mode to ad-hoc doesn't work.
Code:
sudo iwconfig wlan0 mode Ad-Hoc
I'm getting this:
Error for wireless request "Set Mode" (8B06) :
    SET failed on device wlan0 ; Operation not supported.


I was able to do it in windows using http://www.connectify.me/ . So i know it's possible.
Is there any such software for linux? I'm not able to find any in repositories.

This question is not clear to me.
I have a router with a WiFi (Wireless LAN) transmitter/receiver.
In my home situation a Sitecom WL-341.
The main computer has a LAN (wired connection) to this router.
And everybody (who knows the WPA2 key) can use this WLAN connection.
Could you give more detailed info about the internet connection layout are you referring to

I have no idea how to do that, but it sounds interesting.  Maybe this information will be of help, as it states that some linux drivers for wifi don't support ad-hoc.  In that situation,  ndiswrapper could be of help.

I don't expect so as it means that the laptop1 802.11 WLAN should get it's own SSID.
And I doubt if any 802.11device is capable of doing this.
But I must admit that I am not an expert in this WLAN area.

I actually only wanted to know how to make my laptop as a software internet router for other laptops. I thought changing wifi mode to ad-hoc would help. However, i have no idea how to make a software router out of my laptop. Can you please help me in this regard.

Hi Kranthi
short answer , there is no short answer

 If no one else comes up with  ( working ) answers , I suggest you read this : http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/linux-networking-3/how-can-i-turn-my-linux-laptop-into-a-wifi-hotspot-855887/  .
I'm not copping out, some of this is gonna depend on what you have for wifi hardware.
From personal experience I would suggest a router ,
or a bottle of asprin
