Basically, you need an existing connection to the internet.  Then you
create another "shared" connection that your other computers will
access.  When you have both of those, then NM will start dnsmasq and
everything and NAT the "shared" connection to the main internet

If you've already got an internet connection, then just choose "Create
new wireless network..." from the menu, type in the details, and it
should set that new network up.  You can then connect to that adhoc wifi
network from other computers, and they will get IP addresses via DHCP
from your machine.
