IEEE 1394 is the international standard number for Firewire. As you probably know, that's not a network adapter, but it gets classed as one because of the way that it works internally.

One disadvantage with this otherwise harmless eccentricity is that the two adapters can sometimes become bridged when setting up a network, especially peer to peer.
