Wireless & 1394 together?

Hi there,

Hoping someone can help. We have a wireless network operating at our home business, with 1 PC (XP Pro) and 2 Laptops (XPHome). They are connected via a wireless router and share broadband & printers and the PC acts as a server for files and program (like our customer management database "Goldmine"). What I have found is that the wireless works great, but when I am accessing certain programs (like Goldmine), it seems to be really really slow (it can take forever to get into the program and change a customers record etc.

I purchased a 1394 connection for the PC (laptop already had one) and a 400MB cable, what I was hoping to do, was to wire the laptop to to the PC in order to speed up the transfer of files, printer sharing & programs. However I still wanted the wireless connection to connect to the router for access to the internet.

Can anyone let me know if this is even possible?
