Default firewire question

can i use a firewire connection for my cable internet for faster connection? If so will i need to get a modem hardwired for firewire? then will I have to get a firewire card or can i use the firewire connection on my soundcard?

i dont see why you would want to use firewire . . . .

it goes 400mbps (800mbps in the near future will be standard), and cable internet is usually only 2-5mbps . . .

you can get a gigabit ethernet card = 1000mbps

if you can find a modem with a firewire connection, knock yourself out! although i have never heard of them before...

gee thanks....i think....just wondering what the heck a firewire would be doing on the back of my darned soundcard....which i am on creatives site right now and truing to figure out.

Integrated High Speed 1394 FireWire® Port
Enables PC-to-PC networking and low latency gaming plus high speed data transfers with IEEE® compliant devices including MP3 players, storage devices and DV Camcorders. i know what it's there for.....but i think I would much rather use a LAN card than a firewire thru my soundcard for connecting 2 pc's
