neat

do you have access to another computer with internet access? it may be a good idea to update the drivers for your network adapters.....if the update doesn't fix it maybe uninstall them completely and then try the newest versions of the drivers

right click my computer, choose manage, then go to device manager...find the network adapter with the yellow ! and right click it...choose uninstall...then reboot the machine...it SHOULD redetect the device....let it install the drivers for it and see if the ! is gone

1394 is firewire and irrelevant to internet connections

are you connected directly to a modem or is there a router in the mix?

intel pro ve internet connection <---that's the one you should uninstall if you're using a wired connection

wireless 3945abg network connection <--- that one if you're using wireless

only install one of the two for now so we can keep things simple...just be sure to uninstall the one for the type of connection you're using
