[Solved] Cann't set Adhoc mode on brcmsmac

I want to share my eth0 internet connection via wi-fi/ I've read that I must enable adhoc. But when I type "iwconfig wlan0 mode ad-hoc" I get the error "Error for wireless request "Set Mode" (8B06) :
    SET failed on device wlan0 ; Operation not supported.
"

I'm running Archlinux with last KDE version, and Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM43225 802.11b/g/n (rev 01) with brcmsmac driver.

that's lspci -v:
Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM43225 802.11b/g/n (rev 01)
        Subsystem: Foxconn International, Inc. T77H103.00 Wireless Half-size Mini PCIe Card

iwconfig:

          Retry  long limit:7   RTS thr:off   Fragment thr:off

And if my card doesn't support adhoc, how can I create wifi-hotspot?

Solved
I've changed driver to broadcom-wl, it supports adhoc. But... my android phone doesn't show adhoc in wifi list, so I can't connect phone to computer
