Can someone please enlighten me on this stray connection showing in Network Connections.

Posted Image


I have a wireless ADSL modem and connect to it via a wireless USB adapter and also via cat 6 to the Realtek Ethernet NIC.

The 1394 adapter is disabled at the moment but even if I enable it, it doesn't appear to have any bearing on connecting to the Internet.

I'm guessing it has something to do with when I connect my Panasonic miniDV Vidcam to the PC via FireWire cable, but would appreciate enlightenment.

Thanks

Its an ImageShack clickable thumbnail. Give it a click and you should get it.

We have a web block here at work and cannot view image sites. Even being an admin here, I don't get an exception. :thumbsup:

Sorry.

Right.. The answer to your question is yes. It is the same icon as the Local Area Connection, except it is labelled 1394 Connection.

Okay, so if you go to Control Panel and open Network Connections, if you right-click the 1394 connection and choose properties, is there a checkbox for "Show in notification area when connected" or something along those lines?

It does for the Local Area Connection but not for the 1394.

It says it is a Network Adapter by M$oft, located... on VIA OHCI Compliant IEEE 1394 Host Controller.

It is now 0140 so must head for the sack. Cheers

The 1394 is your firewire port. For some reason Microsoft lists it under network connections.

Thank you both.

I assumed it was something like that, but it is nice to know these things.
