I'm trying to set up an ad-hoc wifi network so I can share my Mint laptop's wired connection with my iPhone (thus getting around a port block on a work network).
I've followed the various HOWTO guides on setting up an ad-hoc network and got that working -- I can set it up on Mint, see it on my iPhone, select it, get asked a WEP password, it's all great. EXCEPT...Mint isn't giving me an IP address, gateway, etc.
I've got this working before on Ubuntu, but for the life of me can't get it working under LMDE! I've removed dnsmasq (going with dnsmasq-base instead) and in general, followed the instructions at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Internet/ConnectionSharing.
Can anyone help me kick DHCP into motion? Thanks!
