Controller etc for firewire (IEEE 1394).

Do not remove, even if you don't have any firewire devices. They could be part of the motherboard setup.

This is probably your Ethernet LAN adaptor. Either you have this facility on your motherboard or have a PCI adapter card.

If you have a home network and/or a modem/router or such device connected then the '1394' connection will be shown.

If no such devices or connections are in use then the facility is still enabled on your machine.
