XP Home Network

I have a small home n/work with all the PC's running XP. Two PC's came with a built in NIC's while the other PC I fitted with a Netgear 311 NIC. All the PCs access the i/net through a Linksys Router

The two PC's with the integral NIC show one connection on the Network Connections page

When I view N/work connections on the PC with the Netgear card it shows 2 types of connection.

1. Internet Gateway

2. Lan or High Speed I/net.

Under this second category there are two connections

a) Local Area Connection through the Netgear card

b) 1394 Connection through 1394 adaptor.

What is this 1394 connection all about and why on the integral PC'c don't I have a I/net Gateway icon?

Your 1394 connector is a "firewire" connection. Do you have any sound blaster audigy cards in the machine as these have 1394 connectors built in. As to the I/net Gateway icon - sorry cannot help. But someone else might.

I have an Audigy soundcard.

Perhaps I should have said everything is working fine, I am just curious about these connections.
