    Hey there boys and girls, I just installed a firewire card and everytime I try to use it, upon restart my internet connection is gone and i have to run a patch i found to fix the problem. Upon further investigation, it seems my onboard ethernet connection (where my cable modem is plugged into on my motherboard) is sharing the same IRQ as my new firewire card. I tried a few PCI slots, and it still uses the same slot. Any ideas on what I can do to solve this problem? thanks!

    Go into your BIOS and see if you can reassign IRQs.

    if you're using winxp, disable 1394 connection in network connections, sometimes this helps
