A firewall PCI card is a NIC card that has a built in Firewall. It is designed for Servers who are directly connected to an internet backbone without a firewall in between. Since it is a standard NIC, you can use it for your LAN.

ehhh i know what a firewall PCI card is. I'm not talkin about it, I'm talkin about a FIREWIRE card, it shows in the device manager as a 1394 Net Adapter

Yes, there are certain cables you can use to network two computer via a firewire cable. Shop around for a cable specifically labeled for PC to PC networking, and if both PCs have a firewire port, in most cases it can be used for internet and peer to peer LAN networking
