Is there a GUI app to setup and toggle hostapd?

4

Title says it all, I’ve tried wifi-hostapd-app but I always run into trouble while installing one of its dependencies, dnsmasq specifically. I read one of the workarounds is to disable Ubuntu’s Network Manager, I’d rather not do that.

          maybe this can help you to better deal with hostapd:

          Hostapd : The Linux Way to create Virtual Wifi Access Point

          for gui you can check out this project (did not check myself but will sometimes :D):

          https://code.google.com/p/wifi-hostapd-ap/downloads/list

          … and … tataaaa
          if you are using ubuntu (at least since version 11.10) recent versions of Ubuntu have an option in the Network Manager GUI to share one internet connection over a LAN or WLAN.
          enjoy! 😀
