Description

In Ubuntu on Windows (Windows 10 Home, version 1709, build 16299.248), WiFi network interfaces are presented as "link/ieee802.11" instead of "link/ether". Such WiFi interfaces are capable of UDP multicast, as tested with netcat.
NetworkMonitor currently only recognizes "link/loopback" and "link/ether" interface types, as indicated in DEBUG logs. It should recognize "link/ieee802.11" as well.
