    I just got a laptop and I used to connect it via firewire to my desktop so I could transfer my music and pics in a quicker manner instead of my wireless network. Now I'm trying to connect them again, but the hardware properties of my desktop pc shows that the 1394 Net Adapter is broken (it has that little yellow icon on it). I tried uninstalling it but the icon still appears...I tried updating the driver but I can't find any either...

    Any steps I should be taking?

    Broken? Disable it in Device Manager and reboot...it should re-discover the device and reinstall the drivers then...if not then add new hardware manually...
