Wireless Hotspot is basically a Virtual Router which lets you share your connected wireless connection through your Linux PC or Laptop. it can also act as a repeater/booster. I would like to take you through a method from which you can easily create WiFi Hotspot or can turn any Linux based PC into a virtual router. Step by step method explained in below instructions.

Step 1:

First step is to open a terminal.

Step 2 :

Write “sudo su” command in your terminal without quotes and press Enter. 

Step 3:

install these packages: sudo apt install util-linux bash procps hostapd iproute2 iw haveged net-tools dnsmasq iptables 
(Just Copy paste this command and press Enter)

Step 4:

Type all below command one by one in terminal and press enter, this will download create_ap package which will help you to create Wireless Hotspot.

(in this command Wlan0 is interface from whom you wants to share internet connection)(To know your interface use “ifconfig” command)
