Since FireWire is not longer be a connection to perpheral devices, they now only have a USB 3.0 connection, Is there anyway to utilize the Ethernet port on the computer for connection to a USB 3.0 device?  I have two external hard drives (2tb each) that carry this type of connection and boy are they SLOW and are being used for Time Machine backups, present OS X configuration is 10.6 internal and 10.8 on separate external drive for a dual boot system.
