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.

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

sudo apt-get install hostapd

I'm the author of the original script (here is the original link 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.

Any feedback is welcome.

Best regards,

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