    Question [SOLVED] How do I share internet from a wireless access point?


    I am a new Arch user. I started using Arch just a few days ago. Need your help to forward traffic to the Wireless access point I created on arch. i am using cable internet (ppp0) which I want to share via a usb wifi adapter running as a WAP. I followed the instructions in this link to enable the AP mode. Afterwards I followed the instructions provided in the Arch Wiki to forward the traffic but because of my inexperience I am still unable to connect to the internet. Here is the output of iptables -nvL :
    Code:
