Wireless hotspot or router as service? Linux


Recommended Posts

I want to create a wireless hotspot as a system service so when I boot a particular device it becomes it's wireless hotspot becomes available.

Are there some configuration files for this? One tutorial I found says open /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/wifi-hotspot and change and change it from mode=infrastructure to mode=ap. This file doesn't exist on my machine. Should I create this file or is there something more up to date?

Is there a recommended way to make my Linux PC act as a wireless router? I've looked this up but all I get is a bunch of ads from wireless cellphone companies for hotspotting features on their phones and that's not going to help me.
