http://askubuntu.com – First my hat is off to all you wiz kids. It never ceases to amaze me at the knowledge base out there. I am running UBUNTU 10.04 and have cable modem access to the internet. I have firestarter on both my desk top and my laptop. Firestarter works fine on my desk top and the laptop(when using the hot spot). Tonight I tried to access the internet using the laptop, but this time I plugged in the cable modem and tried to use it instead of the hot spot. (no 4G where I am at...got spoiled) In this set up firestarter will not connect. I get one message. device wlan0 is not ready. Gateways, DHCP (HowTos)
