It's Firewire. Firewire (IEEE 1394) does incorporate a networking protocol, so can be used to make a network connection to another computer also having a Firewire port. Firewire communicates up to 400Mbps, so it can be fast, but I haven't personally known of anyone using it. If your laptop doesn't have a physical Firewire port, the device could still appear as the circuitry could be incorporated in a chipset, and only used on another model variant.
