A Microsoft rep, when fixing a "Windows One Live Care" problem
noted when running a ipconfig command prompt, when pinging
my computer, the request timed out. Should I, and why should I
be concerned about this? Command Prompt answers: 4 packets
sent, 0 recieved, 100% lost. Also checking on Status 1394 Connection
shows Activity: 0 sent, 0 recieved. Can someone explain what all
this means, and how to fix it? I imagine that "pinging" stats are
important, and 0 Activity in the 1394 Connection is NRAB -
"Not Recommended As Best." Thank you for your help!

Don't worry about the 1394 connection. That is for networking firewire devices. As for your normal connection, if you have your firewall turned on and/or behind a router of some sort, you are probably ok there too as that will block ping requests.
Hope this helps,
