I've been looking through a couple of manuals and tutorials, most concerning Arch Linux, but I seem to be finding slightly contradicting things.
So, I use XFCE4 on Fedora 23, and the network manager that comes with that (
I'd like to create a WLAN hotspot with the WLAN adapter in the laptop I'm using, and bridging that with the wired connection of the laptop.
I was unable to do that.
The network manager tries to connect to another WLAN network it sees, even when instructed to enable the Hotspot or Ad-Hoc modes I've configured.
iw phy0 info, the supported modes list looks like this:
Supported interface modes: * IBSS * managed * monitor
which leaves me wondering, if AP (which is missing in that list) mode is even possible.
I can only assume, that once having configured the WLAN-AP, I'd then have to configure a bridge with both the WLAN device and the Ethernet device bridged together.
