I tried to configure router PC in my Linux Ubuntu 10.04 . I use 2 connection to connect 2 clients. The first computer uses a LAN connection and the second computer uses a wireless connection. When I created a new wireless connection in Ubuntu, the connection could not be detected by the other computer that use wireless connection. I have tried to use Windows and Ubuntu as a client but it doesn't work wither way.

Does anybody have any ideas on how I can get this to work?
