    Not unless you find some kind of adapter for FireWire-Ethernet.

    But your request seems odd -- an Ethernet card is not expensive, nor
    does it cost a lot of performance. And it is the preferred way to
    connect a broadband network adapter lke that for cable networks.

    Is there some other reason you want to do this?

    IEEE1394 (FireWire) with a RJ45 input?? Cable modems do indeed have RJ45
    connectors, but they are 10/100baseT network connectors not IEEE1394. Some
    cable modems also have USB.

    Normal IEEE1394 connectors look similar to USB connectors, and RJ45
    connectors look like american telephone plugs.
