Ethernet and USB connections in parallel?

I am connecting my Homehub 1.5 via the ethernet connection direct to my computer which shows a 1394 Connection Speed 400Mbps icon in the system tray, but additionally I have a USB connection in parallel showing 100Mbps also icon showing in the system tray.
If I unplug the USB I get no network connection.

If I click on 'show all connections' it shows:- 1.Local Area Connection Via VT Rhine II Fast Ethernet Connection.
2.Local Area Connection 2 Thomson ST Remote NDIS Device.
3.1394 Connection 1394 Net Adapter #3
My computer crashes frequently on browsing and think it may be because I have two connections running? Should I be using both types of connection?

“Should I be using both types of connection?”

No

Disable the 1394 Connection 1394 Net Adapter

The 1394 Net Adapter is not used



“I am connecting my Homehub 1.5 via the ethernet connection direct to my computer”

Is it connected to the ethernet port on the computer?

“If I click on 'show all connections' it shows: - 1.Local Area Connection Via VT Rhine II Fast Ethernet Connection”

Which is the correct Internet Port that the Homehub cable should be connected to and the Lan

port “Enable”

Just in case you don't realise - 1394 is FireWire. I doubt you've got a cable connected to it. You can disable it or just ignore it.

The 100Mbps connection is the Ethernet connection - not USB.

Thanks I had wrongly assumed the 100Mbps was USB.

Can you please explain the 1394 Firewire which appears a faster connection 400Mbps, how would I connect this up, presumably it's a faster connection?

You cannot use it for internet which is an ethernet connection. For Firewire see click here

As Woolwells link shows, FireWire is for other types of connections.

But in any case the 100Mbps of the ethernet connection is far, far faster than your actual broadband speed - so it wouldn't do anything for you anyway.

The 100Mbps is just the capability of the link from the PC to the router. Your broadband speed is determined by other things.
