i was just wondering if it's possible to create a network with 2 pc's using firewire cables. i've already set one up using an ordinary cat5 cable. however, the throughput for firewire cables is 400Mbps compared to 100Mbps for cat5. i know the transfer rates for moving a file are limited by the mechanicals of the hard drive, but the ping for playing network games would be decreased if firewire was used.
i know it's not necessary, the ping on cat5 is pretty much non-existent but i was just curious
