Ok, I have been on dial up for way too long. Recently in network connections (XP-SP2) on my ASUS A7N8x Deluxe mobo it listed a bunch of network connections like my dial up, my cell phone (thru a cable), and under LAN/High Speed it lists:
Local Area Connection
Nvidea nForce MCP
Local Area Connection 2
3-Com 3C902B Integrated
I believe the nForce is integrated too. I have liitle experience with connections of LAN/High Speed but it says my 1394 is connected... maybe I am picking up a piggyback signal from a neighbor's DSL? I can't just launch IE, so is there a way to make it work?

you can do firewire networking, but if you don't have it connected, then it ain't using it.
yes the nvidia nic is integrated.
make sure you are getting an IP on your ethernet connection. doublecheck which one you are really using.
Microsoft is just listing your firewire card/chip as a network device, which it is (among other things), but if your machine is not connected to another machine with a firewire cable, then you are not networked via 1394, and you can simply right click on that "connection" and disable it.
