Hi Friends,
I have posted this problem earlier also, but still I got struct at that

I am running Red Hat 8.0 on my Dell Latitude C610 laptop. I am using 
Lucent Orinoco and Prism II based PCMCIA wireless network card ( eth1 ),
with its driver
orinoco-0.13 version. My laptop has also got internal NIC - 3COM 3c590 (
eth0 ).

I have installed snort-1.9.0 and configured it . When I am running it
with my 3COM 3c590 NIC,
snort is running fine in daemon mode. But when I tried to run the snort
binary with my wireless network interface, it just
disables my network. I am not able to ping to other hosts in the network
or vice versa. I still dont know what is causing 
this problem.

Before starting the snort in daemon mode, my laptop is in the network,
when I tested it using ftp client, ping etc. and
everything works fine.

I am attaching my snort.conf file, and snortd script. Please someone
suggest me where I doing wrong.
Why the same configuration runs fine for one interface and fails for the
wireless network interface?

Any help is greatly appreciated...Thank you all in advance for your

Thanks ,

 <<snortd>>  <<snort.conf>>
