    1394 is the firewire adapter.

    You need to check the computer's ports and in Device Manager to see if the computer has a Network Interface Connector (often called ethernet adapter). You can add one either as a PCI card (cheap) or a USB device (easy to install), either will come with a driver disk.

    i did not see the network interface connector
  3. Judging from the screengrab's multiple Yellow Query Marks the motherboard/chipset driver pack is not properly installed, affecting the PCI slots (maybe the network controller is a PCI device).

    Go to the motherboard maker's site (or the chipset maker's site if you can spot which model of chipset is in use) and download the drivers -- you can't just rely on Windows for drivers.

    If this a desktop computer, also check the rear panel(s) for an ethernet socket.
