ubuntu wlan umts router

Needed to share my UMTS connection on my ubuntu netbook.

Installed following packages:

  • dnsmasq
  • hostapd
  • bwm-ng

Wrote a script and modified the example hostapd.conf from /usr/share/doc/hostapd/examples.

Put both in ~/bin, which is in my $PATH.

It disables WLAN in the Network Manager via dbus command (thanks to joentjuh for cheat), starts hostapd, starts dnsmasq, starts bandwith monitor and restores most of it after bmw ended.
