Hi, im a straight newb when i comes to networking and modems. According to the pic thats my attachment, this is whats going on inside my pc. Now what i want to know is, is it okay to have 1394 net adapter enabled? I use my ethernet for my modem which is cable. Does this have anything to do with my modem connection or can i kill that. I ask because my firewall has been lighting up alot and i'm not sure if thats good or helping me at all.

Thank you. :whistling:

The 1394 net adapter you see there is Firewire inout, which can be used as a network adapter, so you can safely disable it from the Network Connections window if you don't use it. Anyway, if you've nothing connected to it, it shouldn't bother your firewall.
