1394 Network Adapter is your Firewire Adapter
the Network Card Driver might not be installed yet.

To confirm that it's installed you can check the device manager.

more info on 1394 Network Adapter can be found at

Do you have any unknown devices in device manager?
If you do not and you do not have any network adapter listed you might not have a network card in the box.

This is a software which helpds you identify the unknown devices.

How are you connecting to the internet?  If it is a wired ethernet connection, you must have a network adapter to plug the cable into.  If it is a wireless connection you will need an adapter of some kind.  Check your hardware with a diagnostic.  These hardware diagnostics are all free:

Belarc:

Siw:

If you have problems downloading, use the System Indformation proceedure :  Start-Programs-Accessories-System Tools-System Information. Click on "components" and highlight "problem devices". Any hardware device with a driver problem will be listed here. Make a note of the PNP Device ID line of the entry. It will contain a Vendor number and a Device number (VEN. . . . DEV. . . .)
both four digits long.
Look up those numbers here:

http://www.pcidatabase.com/index.php

This will tell you the manufacturer and the chip number.  First port of call is the manufacturer's website.  If no joy there, try a driver database like Driverguide:

Good luck!!!
