|Doesn't matter if you've already uninstalled the "1394" but I edited post #7 because I wanted you to wait while I checked up on something, if possible.|
It seems the "1394 net adapter" is a Firewire device - NOT what you need for this issue. The other entry (Dial up 3connect) is for ADSL using a modem rather than a router.
What you are looking for is an "Ethernet Network Adapter" and, from what you say, that is not listed. It should be showing in "Control Panel > Network Connections". Do you know how to get into BIOS? It would be worth going there and checking that your Ethernet card is enabled. It is possible that it needs drivers from your computer manufacturer's website.
Presumably there are no other sockets on your machine which take the cable from the router?
The exact make and model number of your machine would be useful, also whether it is a laptop (which I suspect) or a PC.
I'm off until tomorrow evening (after midnight here in UK) - maybe someone else will join in. In the meantime it would be worth you checking with your computer manufacturers website. If you are unsure how to get into BIOS, that info will probably be there - it's a matter of tapping F2, or some other key, during bootup. While you are at it you could also check for Ethernet Network Adapter drivers.
Pop back with the computer spec anyhow, for either me or others.
