You have

and hostapd

rpm -q hostapd

but you need a wifi drive that support AP mode. So check it first.

iw list

need something like :

  Supported interface modes:
           * IBSS
           * managed
           * AP
           * AP/VLAN

but this depends on drives , for example my wifi drive:iwlwifi (Intel wireless something) doesn't have AP mode, so I can't enable it. you also can create wireless adhoc mode but androids doesn't connect to adhocs by default !, for androids is much more easy have one AP Mode

How turn your netbook 3g mobile broadband wifi hotspot
