Oh, when I checked if there's a dnsmasq process running, I've found

/usr/sbin/dnsmasq -u dnsmasq -r /var/run/dnsmasq/resolv.conf

... so:

sudo /etc/init.d/dnsmasq stop

... killed that one. After that, I seem to be able to share my
connection in ***secureless mode only***.

Now, first successfully connected client will have this configuration:

IPv4 Configuration: DHCP
IPv4 Address:
Subnet Mask:

... while in "WEP 128-bit Passphrase" secured mode --I've picked a 13
digit ASCII passphrase--, so called connected, client will have this
configuration instead:

IPv4 Configuration: DHCP
IPv4 Address:         (No idea what this is...)
Subnet Mask:             (Uh oh...)
Router:             ***No router found***   (Ouch!)

... as you can image, obviously, in WEP secured mode client isn't really

What do you think now the problem is? How could I provide you further
info. for this one?

Thanks a million so far Dan!
