It means that wifi0 interface received a packet directly from kernel,
not through wlan0 interface. Are you assigning the IP address on wifi0
interface? If yes, that would explain the issue. You must use wlan0
interface as the data interface and assign the IP address and routing
entries using that interface. wifi0 needs to be set up, but it should
not use an IP address.
