Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional
Firewire is a robust technology that does a lot of things including networking. You can see here from the Internet Society how network connectivity can be achieved for both IPv4 and IPv6.
IPv4 is what most of the internet currently uses and IPv6 is the replacement that is quickly up and coming.
RFC 2734 describes how IPv4 works over Firewire here at http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc2734 and RFC 3146 describes how IPv6 works over Firewire here at http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc3146.
In Network Connections it is perfectly normal to see Firewire listed as a networking device. It can simply be ignored or disabled. If you disable it, it will continue to work for cameras, scanners and other devices.
