Info 2 Nice all in one app
An all in one app was launched that does all of this (with the use of embedded packages) with a nice command-line helper:
check http://www.webupd8.org/2013/06/how-t...ot-access.html for the tutorial!

I was also getting the "obtaining the IP address" error. Two hours of tweaking and I find out that dnsmasq, the service responsible for providing IP address to other devices, was not getting started.

So I tweaked the /etc/dnsmasq.conf and stopped bind9 and dnsmasq and then first I started dnsmasq and then bind9 and now everything works like a charm!

Program to start infrastructure wifi on ubuntu 12.04
I've developed a python GUI program to seamlessly create a wifi infrastructure hotspot on ubuntu 12.04 and later by a single click.

sourceforge.net/p/pyforward

Please note that hostapd package must be installed on your ubuntu machine prior to running the program:

sudo apt-get install hostapd

Hi,

I'm the author of the original script (here is the original link habrahabr.ru/post/122876/) and today I have updated it.
Initially it was created with "easy to read" in mind however multiple sudo is not good, so I decided to make some cleanup work. It was necessary to make some changes regarding dnsmasq as it is often used by "Network Manager" in modern Linux distributions. Also I put everything in one script, so no need to create conf-files separately. And finally you can mention WIFI and LAN interfaces easily from command line.

github.com/giner/helplinux/tree/master/scripts/wifi-host-ap

Any feedback is welcome.

Best regards,
Stanislav

My wifi device is BCM4313. The brcmsmac driver has been updated as of now. It supports AP mode also. This thing actually works!
