Try the driver I pointed to first, then if still no good, visit Linksys for a driver.

Definitely a new adapter will fix it, but so will the right driver with your current one. I have reason to believe the one I pointed you to will be good for ya.

What specific model is it anyhow?

1394 is for firewire.

What you want to do is extract the driver I pointed you to after downloading. Then open the device manager. Right click on the adapter under the network section. Choose update driver software. Browse my computer. Let me pick. Have disk. Browse.

Then find the extracted .inf and double click on it. Hit ok. Hit next and let it install. Reboot.

Yeah, run the .exe and let it extract first. Then after extraction, use device manager to do what I described.
