Could a 1394 net adapter wireless be the reason my wireless modem will not connect to my computer?

What is the brand and model of the adapter ? What is the brand and model of the router ?
Is this adapter from a buisness environment , off a server set up ?

I have a similar problem. I have my Sony Vaio on wireless and want to connect my old Dell Inspiron 9300 as well but it keeps failing with the error message 'error in connection process'. All the detail are correct. I see that the 1349 New Adapter has red cross through it under Device Manager and also wondered if this was the problem. I have been looking for a couple of days on the internet for a solution and I am now confused! As you can tell I am VERY new to 'wireless'. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

I'm not sure how the 1394 (firewire) interface could interfere w/ wireless, but let's assume that's the case. Simply disable the 1394 interface in Device Manager, or perhaps the BIOS (if it's onboard the motherboard chipset, it can often be enabled/disables there) so Windows doesn't even see it. In most cases, ppl aren’t using the 1394 interface anyway. It’s mostly an Apple artifact that has outlasted its usefulness.

A red X will appear on any device that's not enabled, so being disabled it cannot have an effect on any process. With the Dell laptop you may have to enable the wireless adaptor by pressing the Wireless key on the keyboard. At the top row of the keyboard you'll see in a different color some symbols on various keys, look for the wireless symbol and while pressing the Fn key press the wireless key one time to enable, press again to disable.
