I find myself trying to help someone configure their PC for maximum performance, usage, etc. This PC is an HP Pavillion a1203w. It not only has a typical PCI NIC Ethernet Adapter but it ALSO has a 1394 Net Adapter onboard which I know is a Firewire connection available for connecting to the Internet or a local network. Here's the thing.....This PC is connected to the Internet by a cable modem using Ethernet and NOT 1394 or Firewire. THEREFORE, I should be able to DISABLE the 1394 Net Adapter......AM I CORRECT????? I mean, there is NOTHING PLUGGED INTO IT and yet it is "CONNECTED" or "ACTIVE" according to its icon in the NETWORK CONNECTIONS FOLDER!!
"The right direction's all that counts and there's no way for me to get there late!!"
