I am going to make you happy then.
I am using an adhoc connection successfully on my nexus 7 and nokia 79.

Download the ap-hotspot deb package here
https://launchpad.net/~nilarimogard/+archive/webupd8/+sourcepub/3958646/+listing-archive-extra

Before using dpkg to install the package make sure you have hostapd
and dnsmasq installed on your
system. They are found in the official debian repositories.

Its very easy to use,
"sudo ap-hotspot start" will start the script. The script will
automatically identify your network source, be it
usb or ethernet connection. And then you can use your laptop as a
makeshift router.

More info about the script can be found here.

Working flawlessly here
