Ubuntu – Hotspot upgrade to wpa2


I use my notebook as a hotspot(through a wired connection), but if i want to change te security setting. The only 2 options i get is WEP or WEP sentence. and thats not enough to connect a windows device. i have ubuntu 16.04.1(LTS), on my notebook.

So is there an way to upgrade my hotspot to WPA2, i think its possible because on windows i always had wpa2.

PS you may need some info of my notebook, please say how i could get you that info.

With kind regards,

I find the answer, in this manual. You have to save te hotspot first as a hotspot. And then after you save it open again and switch to wpa2.

I did not know the difference between ad-hoc and hotspot.

Anyway thanks :D
