      1394 Adapter or 3Com ethernet

      Hi

      Just activated on Mid yesterday and seem to be getting better than expected speeds considering distance from exchange etc mainly due to excellent advice I followed on here before connecting it all up

      Question I have is I just plugged the router into port on PC without realising there were 2 of them. I have plugged it into 1394 Adapter port, but seem to be getting good results and no problems so far.

      I tried plugging into the 3Com fast ethernet port tonight and couldn't get comms to router.

      Any pros or cons of leaving in 1394 port, or any benefits of getting the ethernet port working and using that instead?

      thanks for any advice

      Gary

      Please just ignore me, i'm being stupid!

      Ethernet port still won't recognise the router, but i'm actually connected through NVIDIAnForce MCP networking adapter which is working fine.

      Same question applies, will connecting via Nvidia be ok, or do I need to get 3Com ethernet working?

      Should be fine on either, I though I was misreading the 1394 bit, I am positive thats firewire, and was gutted as my router wont connect that way

      Thats what happens when I post without thinking about what I'm saying first. Nice first post

      Wish it was connecting up via firewire!

      Thanks for reply
