    Can anyone tell me how to set this up. Its not that I need it, but got onto my works network this morning and when I enabled it, I got 400 kbs, but couldnt get on the net or get my emails. I did a search of the forum and couldnt really find an explanation as to what its used for (is it firewire or a network connection) Googling didnt come up with much either (well the first five pages anyway) As I said, I dont need it but if I can actually get 400kbs, then I'd like to have it.

    ive read several reposts of what this is. Apparelty its actually the firewire port but for some unknown reason its displayed in the networking section.
    My friends computer has a similar problem when it would say that that connection was acrive at high speeds, even when nothing was connected to his laptop.
    As ive read, i'd just ignore it.

    Thanks guys, I thought it was firewire, but wasnt sure when it was in network connections, so I guess I'll do as suggested and just ignore it.
