HP Omnibook XE3 - 1394 net adapter cannot start
Posted on 2003-11-01
Recently reinstalled XP sp1 on this model notebook. In the device manager all components are working properly except the "1394 net adapter". It is under the network adapter branck along with the internal CAT 3 adapter which is working fine.
I know 1394 is a firewire port but is it meant to be in the network adapter area and if so why won't it start when there is a driver present?
I've tried the HP site but i hit a snag when i discovered there are 4 types of this model - gc, gd, ge & gf. I don't know what this is. I no longer have the documentation and nothing on the device indicates one or the other. Either way none of the models appeared to have the driver desired or assistance to this prob.
The current driver is nic1394.sys
