I am trying to connect to the internet using the 1394 net adapter through a LAN connection.
Windows XP installed the driver.
When I connect the cable from my modem to the port on my ABIT computer one green LED lights and one yellow LED flashes but it does not work. Am I doing something wrong or is my network adapter at fault? My Email address is lylstewart@yahoo.com.
Your help in this matter would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Lyle Stewart

1394 ie (IEEE 1394) A.K.A. Firewire. This is only meant for computer to computer connections. Shouldn't work connecting to any modems/etc. You need either USB or Ethernet to connect to most DSL/Cable modems.

I could be wrong since I don't use any Firewire devices, but I'm fairly confidant.
