Hello Everyone,
I have just installed Ubuntu 12.04 LTS & although I have a dual boot (with Windows 7), but I don't think I would be booting Windows 7 because Ubuntu 12.04 LTS is so much easy and much fast.
However, I have encountered a problem while trying to make my laptop a Wi-Fi hotspot for my tablet/mobile devices. I have a wired internet connection & I don't have a router. In Windows, I used some commands to share my internet connection & make my laptop a hotspot. I have been trying to do the same with Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. But it seems that Ubuntu is not able to detect my inbuilt WiFi adapter. The WiFi LED at the bottom of my laptop is not ON. Bluetooth & WiFi operate from the same toggle switch & when I toggle ON, the Bluetooth LED is ON but the WiFi one is not.
Here is a screenshot:[email protected]/

I have gone through the steps mentioned in this ubuntu documentation:

I have almost done everything as said in that documentation. I stopped at Step 6 when my result was very different from what the documentation says. Here is a screenshot
of my result:[email protected]

If anyone has anything in mind, please let me know. That would be great!
