Every time I log onto IE6 or Outlook Express6 and connect I have to go into control/system/hardware/device manager and go down to Network Adapter/ 1394 net adapter has a red X over it. If i right click and click on properties/ enable - everyting is fine till i close the connection . Then i have to do it all over again.
Another querk I found, I 'had' a Modem, 1394 and local Network adaptors in my network connection window. I clicked on the network adaptor, then holding down the Ctrl button, clicked the 1394 adaptor, then righthand clicked and selected 'make bridge'... this worked for me.
Note:... it doesnt work since I installed a router.
