Connectify for Ubuntu | Works for Android

The pre-installed Network Manager in Unity does not support Access Point (AP) mode which is required for Android devices. Fortunately, KDE’s connection editor support this mode.

Below is how to do it yourself:

1. Click the link below to bring up Ubuntu Software Center and install kde-nm-connection-editor:

2. Once installed, press Alt+F2 and run command to launch the app:

3. Click Add button and choose “Wireless (shared)” from the drop-down list.
4. Type in a name, ssid, and select Access Point mode. If want, set up a password under Wireless Security tab. Finally, click OK.
5. Click Network Manager applet on Unity panel and then choose “Connect to Hidden Wi-Fi network”, choose the connection you created in previous step and click Connect button.

Turn on WLAN on your Android phone and you’ll see the access point in the list. Click connect and enjoy!
