This has me curious for a long time. If I check my local area connection, I am up to number 5, instead of #1. This must have to do with xp repair installs or updating of the drivers. I only have one 1394 and one LAC hardware devices. Is there any way to get back to #1 ? The reason I ask is that some tweak programs will show 5 hardware devices. Device manager has the correct number. Uninstalled the drive does not help.
