How to share Internet Connection

          Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) provides the ability for one computer to share its Internet connection with another computer.

Here we are going to create and share a wireless Ad-Hoc network (on the desktop) with other computers.

Firstly we need to install dnsmasq-base . Dnsmasq is a small daemon which provides DNS services and DHCP services. To learn more about dnsmasq , click here . However it interferes with Internet sharing services which dnsmasq-base provides. So we need to uninstall dnsmasq.

$ sudo apt-get install dnsmasq-base

$ sudo apt-get remove dnsmasq

Now restart network manager

$ sudo service network-manager restart

Now create a new wireless network . Left-click on the Network Connections icon and select Create New Wireless Network . Name it UbuntuAdHoc ( if you choose another name, you’ll have to edit the connection to turn on network sharing).

Set the encryption to WEP 40/128-bit Key (you can experiment with the type of encryption) . That’s it your AdHoc Network should be up now and any Internet traffic should now be routed through your wired network interface.

Now connect any client device that you want to the wireless AdHoc network and you should be able to surf the net easily …
