capturing on the wrong nic

Yep, total newbie here, but I have managed to do the following:
install LAMP, install snort, configure 2 eth devices, install base,
and capture traffic, the only problem is that it is traffic on the
management nic, not the nic I have plugged in to my hub (the one I
want sniffing).

cable modem
-> hub -> snortTest
-> hub -> firewall/wireless router -> home network devices

I know this has to be a setting in the conf file, at least I think it does.

My internal IP:
from the snort.conf:

eth0 - management nic
eth1 - sniffer nic

what am I doing wrong?

Thanks in advance!!!
