It shows "Wi-Fi Hotspot Active" but not visible by any laptop or android phones. I have installed hotspotd but that also didn't work.

Terminal displays this: /*********************

[root@Krsna hotspotd-latest] # sudo hotspotd start
You need root permissions to do this, sloth!

[Praveen@Krsna ~] $ lspci -k | grep -A 3 -i network
08:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM43142 802.11b/g/n (rev 01)
    Subsystem: Dell Wireless 1704 802.11n + BT 4.0
    Kernel driver in use: wl
    Kernel modules: bcma, wl
[Praveen@Krsna ~] $ modinfo ath9k | grep depend
depends:        mac80211,ath9k_hw,ath9k_common,cfg80211,ath

Please help to solve the problem.

Thank You
