Ubuntu laptop creates ad hoc wifi and Android can't connect
I'm trying to setup a WiFi hotspot on my laptop I just installed Ubuntu 17.04 onto. The problem is that it outputs an ad hoc network type, which Android devices can't use. So I need to change to a regular access point. I've tried to change by:
''sudo gedit /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/wifi-hotspot"
And entering "ap" to replace ad hoc, but it didn't work.
The laptop is a Dell Inspiron 6400 with a Qualcomm atheros WiFi card.
