Create hotspot with Linux (Ubuntu Gnome)

This manual shows how to use a Linux PC as a WiFi router. The WiFi will be accessble as long as your PC is running.



  1. Klick on “Activities” in the upper left corner, enter “Network” into the searchbar and select “Wi-fi” from the results.

  1. Now click on the Menu in the upper right corner (the three dots) and click on “Turn On Wi-Fi Hotspot”

  1. Give your hotspot a name
  2. Assign your hotspot a password or let the PC generate one for you.
