My laptop (use's Ubuntu 13.10) is connected to internet using a wired connection at
eth0 with ip
192.168.42.13 and it also acts as a
wifi hotspot at
wlan0 with the ip
192.168.1.1 (i used airbase-ng to set up the ap). Now I have an android device that needs to get connected to that wifi. I see that my android is able to connect to the
hotspot and receive the following network settings from the
dhcp server I set up. (I used a tool call Net Info II from PlayStore to see the below details on my android).
# My android network settings (connected to the wlan0 of my laptop): ip address: 192.168.1.10 subnetmask: 255.255.255.0 gateway : 192.168.1.254 ap-mac : xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx # My pc's eth0 configuration ip address: 192.168.42.13 submetmask: 255.255.255.0 gateway : 192.168.42.129 iface mac : yy:yy:yy:yy:yy:yy # My pc's wlan0 (hotspot interface) configuration ip address: 192.168.1.1 subnetmask: 255.255.255.0 gateway : 192.168.1.1 iface mac : zz:zz:zz:zz:zz:zz
This thread here talks about a similar problem. I see that I need to forward packets between
wlan0 network to connect my wireless ap's devices to internet. Now How do I forward the packets I receive from
wlan0 to eth0 and
eth0 to wlan0 to get my device connected to internet ?
