Default Connect laptop with wired network problem?

I have a laptop with IEEE 1394 adapters and liked the idea of networking it at 400 Mbps. The 1394 Connection Status in Network Connections says that it is connected at 400 Mbps, but on the support tab there is no IP address.
If you try to repair the connection, you get the message:

Windows could not finish repairing the problem because the following action cannot be completed:
TCP/IP is not enabled for this connection. Cannot proceed.

When you check the connection properties, however, TCP/IP is enabled and is properly set up. I tried running ipconfig /all, and the adapter is not even listed. I tried removing the hardware from the Device Manager and letting Windows find it again, but that did not work. I tried using the command netsh int ip reset [log_file_name] (from the Microsoft KB article 299357) but it did not help. I tried using a utility called WinsockXPFix but it did not help.

I am out of ideas. Does anyone have a solution for me?
