Firestarter cannot monitor both Eth0 and wifi0. and will not start on wifi0.

Bug #263504 reported by laptoplinux on 2008-09-01
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
firestarter (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

I am able to successfully use Firestarter when connected via lan cable (Eth 0) but when I use the wifi (wifi0) it will not start the firewall on that interface. I get a "Failed to start firewall the device wifi0 is not ready...".

However, The Firestarter GUI under the Network headings sees and is monitoring traffic on wifi0.

Yes, this really needs to be resolved. Firestarter should be monitoring all conenctions by default. Having to change the default connection in network settings of Firestarter is very inconvenient.
