I Got A Question (setting up F16 as a hotspot)

I Know That Windows 7 Has Software That Turns Your PC Into A Hotspot, Right?
Well...What About Fedora? (Make It Simple Because I Just Installed Fedora 16 And I'm New Here). Anyway, Here Is My System Info:

Memory: 2.7 GiB
Processor: AMD Athlon II P340 Dual Core Processor X2
Graphics: Gallium 0.4 On AMD RS880
OS Type: Fedora 16 32-Bit (i686)
Disk: 241.1 GB
PC: HP G62 (I Also Used To Have Win 7, But I Put On Fedora 16 And Never Got It Back)

So If You Know Of A Wi-Fi Hotspot Creator, Let Me Know. THANKS!

Re: I Got A Question

Read the last post in this thread: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...otspot-855887/

hostapd is available in the repos, so you can install it by opening a terminal, signing in as root (su - or su), password, then "yum install hostapd". Now, beyond that, I sure don't know anything more than what's explained in the thread and am not about to do the procedure, so perhaps others can help if you get into further problems.

BTW, if you check the Posting Rules, you'll find that "I Got A Question" is not really how you want to ask for help. Give a more detailed request next time and qualified people will probably be quicker to answer it.

Unhappy Re: I Got A Question (setting up F16 as a hotspot)

I can setup my F16 as a hotspot but my devices cannot connect to the HotSpot. I have followed the Fedora 16 Networking GUI interface to setup the hotspot.

http://www.howtogeek.com/116409/how-...-access-point/

I have configured the hotspot and I can find the Hotspot on my Android devices, in a WIFI browser. I can see my SSID and see its strength on Channel 1, but I cannot connect.

I have added addition software to configure ad-hoc networking on the devices.

On my Tablet, I see the network, added the WEP Key, but I cannot connect.

I am not sure if the issue is on the device side or the laptop side.

I have a company defined firewall, iptables based rules.

I have viewed the iptables -L -v -n --line-numbers and I have found this at the end of the listing:-
Chain FORWARD (policy DROP 0 packets, 0 bytes)
num pkts bytes target prot opt in out source destination
1 0 0 ACCEPT all -- * wlan1 0.0.0.0/0 10.42.0.0/24 state RELATED,ESTABLISHED
2 0 0 ACCEPT all -- wlan1 * 10.42.0.0/24 0.0.0.0/0
3 0 0 ACCEPT all -- wlan1 wlan1 0.0.0.0/0 0.0.0.0/0
4 0 0 REJECT all -- * wlan1 0.0.0.0/0 0.0.0.0/0 reject-with icmp-port-unreachable
5 0 0 REJECT all -- wlan1 * 0.0.0.0/0 0.0.0.0/0 reject-with icmp-port-unreachable


which seems fine, as the new Hotspot is listening on 10.42.0.1

Any ideas on how to identify the source of the problem(s) ??
