    There was only one "1394 Connection", but it was never enabled.

    OK and yet you are certain that in network connections there is ONLY the 1394 connection shown
    That for your information is never used
    It is simply an indication of a firewire connection.
    NOT USED these days for any net connection only connection to firewire devices

    DO NOT do anything re the Hidden devices.
    On the network adapters
    right click
    and uninstall the three shown
    Reboot the computer
    as here
    Method 1: Let Windows automatically detect and install network adapters

    Windows can automatically detect and install the correct network adapters for you. It will also correct any corrupted registry entries on the network adapter.

    To direct Windows to automatically detect and install network adapters for you, follow these steps:
    1. Right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
    2. Click the Hardware tab, and then click Device Manager.
    3. To see a list of installed network adapters, expand Network adapter(s). Click to locate the network adapter, and then click Uninstall.
    4. Restart the computer, and then let the system automatically detect and install the network adapter drivers

    I'm sorry it took time, I did as you listed above and uninstalled the devices. Restarted and let my computer find them by it self, unfortunately it couldn't. So I had to use my drivers disk to install them back
    Checked Youtube and a few more online games and still no change.. Can't even watch a 240p quality video :(

    I think I'm giving up.. I'll buy a windows and format or something, sigh.

    Absolutely no need to apologise
    You are doing well
    DO NOT yet think of format

    What is now shown on network connections please not device manager - Control Panel network connections

    I am right in saying, that you told me that this one was NOT there before is that correct.

    Is the connection shown as enabled.

    To attempt to automatically repair your network connection
    1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
    2. Under Pick a Category, click Network and Internet Connections.
    3. In the Network and Internet Connections window, under or pick a Control Panel icon, click Network Connections.
    4. Right-click your network connection, and then click Repair. If Repair is not available, make sure the network cable is connected and the network connection is enabled.
    5. Windows XP will attempt to repair your network connection. If it is unsuccessful, it will display a message describing the problem. After it is done, click Close.

    YOU SAID before that the only connection shown in Network connections was
    the FIREWIRE 1394 connection
    NOW you say that the
    so I asked you to confirm that this is in NETWORK connections and was not there before we un installed connections in device manager and rebooted.
