A few days ago, I decided to add a second wireless configuration to my laptop (running FC4). These are both on the same NIC, but are different networks that I use at different places. Ever since then, I can't get firestarter to work. I've tried the following:
1. Having one network use "wlan0" and the other use "wlan0:1." This caused firestarter to not work because the non-existant wlan0 was not ready. So, I manually changed its name to wlan0:1 in the firestarter configuration 'etc/firestarter/configuration.' After this, firestarter starts, but completely stops the net connection (if I try to go to a site, the browser gets stuck at "waiting for google.com . . ." and ssh, ftp, etc. don't work either. As a note, this is not a DNS or routing problem since I can't even connect to other NICs on my network with ip addresses.
2. Having both connections use wlan0. The connections function properly, but firestarter doesn't start because "The device wlan0 is not ready."
Anyone done this before? Any ideas?
Is there a better way to have two wireless configurations on one machine?
