Hi friends ! I have a Desktop with AMD 6200+ on ASUS motherborad running on windows XP SP3. The device manager indicates an integrated "Texas Instruments OHCI compliant 1394 IEEE host controller" to be present. I have used a connector from this 1394 port on the motherboard to two USB outlets using a suitable cable provided alongwith the motherboard. Now, I have connected this using a "USB to Ethernet" connector to my wireless modem DSL 2640T. (I received some driver CD-ROM alongwith this USB to Ethernet adopter !!) I get the indications in the tray icon that 1394 is connected for a 400 Mbps connection. I disabled the existing networks and enabled only the 1394. But I am not able to get the internet connection using the usual TCP/IP settings that I do with my regular LAN card, successfully. When I tried to repair the connection, I get a message that "TCP/IP is not enabled. Cannot proceed". hhhhhmmmmmmm....... I go to the basic question now : 1. Can I connect for a broadband internet connection through 1394 at all ?? 2. If possible, what are the settings and how I can successfully I set them since the speed through this connection is said to be 400 Mbps whereas the regular LAN one is only 100 Mbps ?
