Im trying to create A wireless hotspot with my Raspberry Pi 2 Model B+ using a RT5370 Ralink Wifi adapter.
Im following this tutorial: https://learn.adafruit.com/setting-up-a-raspberry-pi-as-a-wifi-access-point?view=all
Along with this one: http://rpi.vypni.net/wifi-ap-rt5370-on-raspberry-pi/
Im able to get an access point up and running and I can connect to it however, I cant connect to the internet with it. On the pi my network connection says "No Wireless interfaces can be found" If I connect to ethernet and run "sudo dhcpcd" then the pi can get internet but machines connected to it via the hotspot still cant.
The wifi adapter shows up when I run lsusb
auto lo iface lo inet loopback iface eth0 inet dhcp auto wlan0 allow-hotplug wlan0 iface wlan0 inet static address 192.168.100.1 netmask 255.255.255.0 dns-nameservers 192.168.42.1 126.96.36.199 iface default inet dhcp

Appreciate any assistance. From what I can tell my DHCP hasn't been set up properly with isc-dhcp-server.
