Do you think to use your PC as Accesspoint ?
It is possible under certain conditions, but difficult.

First try if your WLAN-Adapter support the accesspoint mode.
1. download iw
2. run

Code: Select all

iw list
look here:

Code: Select all

 Supported interface modes:
                 * IBSS
                 * managed
                 * AP
AP mean accesspoint mode are supported.
If not, you have no change.

If yes, compile hostapd and read the description.
You have to make a decision, run hostapd in bridge mode or not.

If not make a static IP on the wlaninterface and use dnsmasq for dhcp-server.
The ethernet, ppp or whatever interface must be NATed.

How is your PC connected to the internet ?

Another possibility would be via Bluetooth but i have no experience and no idea with it.
