    Removal of 1934 Network Adaptor

    For some reason a dial up connection has appeared in my network connections, which
    always appears to be enabled.

    It is showing as a 1934 Network Adapter and appears to connect to the internet.
    See screenshot for details.

    I have tried to remove it with spyware but no luck, any help would be appreciated.

    I assume you went to Control Panel>Network Connections and used the tasks shown on the left side?

    Or if you have an on board modem, that you somehow enabled it in the BIOS in error?

    I thought a 1394 adapter was firewire.

    It's not spyware. My Dell laptop's Firewire port appeared the same way. I can't remember what I did about it, but a little Googling shows the following:

    * If a PC connects on that port using a Firewire cable, Windows XP will network with it automatically. However, only shared folders or printers would be accessible. Presumably you don't have any shared folders or printers.

    * If a PC connects on that port using a Firewire cable, and you have enabled the IEEE 1394 connection in the network bridge, Windows XP will allow it to access any other network connections in the bridge, which may include your DSL/cable connection or wi-fi connection.

    Your image shows "Disabled," and that might resolve the issue. If you disable Windows file and print sharing for that connection, you could further lock it down. Finally, edit your network bridge to remove that interface.

    Re: Removal of 1934 Network Adaptor

    I think the problem could be due to the fact that l have my portable hard drive connected to the firewire connection and not USB 2 connection. Which could be reason it is trying to connect to internet and seeing it is network connection.

    Control Panel>Network Connections.

    Highlight the connection in question and the items shown in the screenshot will appear on the left side of the screen.
    Click on the task and follow the prompts.
