I'd hazard a guess that this is something to do with the input layer - which
you probably haven't set up. The documentation for the 2.4.x kernel
mentione a few things you need to update (eg ipchains is replaced by
iptables) - but these were no big deal for me.

The input layer was introduced with 2.2.18 so you may find appropriate
configuration information by doing a search on that version. I upgraded
through 2.2.18 to 2.4.2 with no problems.
