I'm sure I am missing some basic network principles!

my wired card is setup thusly:

inet addr:192.168.0.2  Bcast:192.168.0.255  Mask:255.255.255.0

my wireless card is setup like this:

inet addr:192.168.3.1  Bcast:192.168.3.255  Mask:255.255.255.0

Can you see the problem?

I am also using iptables to route ineternet packets to/from both the
aforementioned cards to my, 3rd, external NIC.

thanks for your help!
