comment Setting up an ad-hoc network on boot
That blog post is trying to connect two Linux computers together; I'm just trying to set up one computer that shares its internet connection wirelessly with Windows PCs and my phone and junk. I can get the network to appear on my Windows PC by running one set of those commands on my laptop, but if I try to connect to it I get "Unidentified Network/No Internet Access".

comment Setting up an ad-hoc network on boot
I ran "iw phy" on my newer laptop. I see a line under "Supported RX frame types:" that says "AP: 0x00 0x20 0x40 0xa0 0xb0 0xc0 0xd0" and immediately under is one that says "AP/VLAN: " and the same hex numbers. The laptop I'll eventually move this all onto is a Dell Latitude D630, but I don't have it with me at the moment. Its hinges are broken so I don't touch it if I don't have to.
