I would like nothing more than to use iptables to block them. Trouble
is, I can't seem to start firestarter. I get this error:

Failed to start the firewall.
The device eth0 is not ready.
Please check your network device settings and make sure your Internet
connection is active.

And I know that eth0 is working because I am on the internet now! I
really don't know what to do, I've google till I was blue on this
about a week ago, and posted to this list, but got nowhere. I guess I
just gave up on it in frustration, but now I see that I must get it
working! Any advise would be very much appreciated.
