Network Port Replacement

I am wondering if it is possible to replace the Network port on a Dell Computer, I have come to the conclusion that it is the actual port that is not functioning properly. This computer is less than 5 years old. Please let me know if you by chance have a walkthrough were I could do it myself. Thank you! Michelle

You can not replace a network port [RJ45] on a Desktop PC bacause usually these ports are suface mounted or soldred to he motherboard itself. Tampering the motherboard may leave it unusable. So it is adviced that you could easily buy and install add-on network adaptors that could serve your needs. If you have a laptop computer you should consult a hardware dealer to find whether they offer any laptop solution for additional network card/port.

Usb port is broke on my tower, wondering if ya'll had replacement parts.


Replacing PC internals can be tricky; it's sometimes very dependent on the type of tower/brand of PC you're using, as some have the USB ports a unique size and are fixed into quite hard-to-reach areas. What's the make and model number of your PC tower?

Latitude 510 battery light flashing amber and white


Hello, the problem you are having is caused by a loose connection on your motherboard between the charging port and the motherboard. You can either open your computer and try to solder it, or you will need to replace the motherboard.

Another possible cause is that your laptop charger is dead. If you can't confirm, just get a new ac adapter, it is much cheaper than replacing the motherboard:

USB ports do not work with my XP Dell computer


Did you connect the power to the Port Replicator? The USB may be older in the Targus or the XP Dell. (1.1 older, vs 2.0 newer).

Why wont my dell D610 charge i have changed the battery and charger


Hey!

If you are still encountering the problem charging your laptop's battery, it is possible that the port where you connect the adapter or the port for the battery is damaged. It will still receive power but it won't charge.

Best solution is to replace the motherboard. Just make sure you would get the exact same devices on a replacement board.

Hope this helps! :D

I have tried a 'spare' LAN connection in the office but my pc will not connect to the network. Does the port require activating?


The port shouldn't need 'Activated'. If you are trying to connect using a 'spare' port in the wall, the wall socket may need 'patched' in to the network to allow your computer to communicate through it.

If you are connecting directly to the router/switch/network hub, it may possibly be an upload port you've connected to (a port used to connect one hub to another or to the main network). There is sometimes a switch next to the port to change it to a normal port, alternatively try selecting a different port to see if your computer will connect.

Due to the power fluctuation my dell laptop 1501 inspron's lan port or network adapter has been burned so whenever i insert network cable in it. it show the message of network cable unplugged


Most laptop lan ports are onboard so replacement would mean replacement of the entire Motherboard. A very costly option. I suggest buying a USB to NIC adapter from your local PC store and just use that for LAN connections.
(side note: get a good brand, cheap USB to NIC/LAN converters sometimes drop connections randomly so spend a few extra $$$ for a good one)

Dell 8100 ethernet will not connect off the port replicator


Let me give it a try ...

There are a few possibilities but i'll cover 2 of them :
1. There is a program that comes with your DELL that will save battery life by turning off your Network Card (LAN) I forgot what is the program name. But usually when you plug the power cable out, there will be notification at bottom right corner of your screen that told you so.

2. I don't know if your port replicator connected to power adapter (is port replicator = docking ?). The fact that your LAN connected when it's on port replicator make my first conclusion more acceptable. Since port replicator got it's own power adapter, it will just turn the LAN on.

Now if you want to check if thats the cause, just plug your notebook to it's power adapter/charger and plug your LAN Cable in. If it works than the problem is the nasty program from DELL.

If you want to disable the program just go to Startup Tab at msconfig and disable (clear the check mark) for that nasty program

Hope it helps

I can't get my computer on the internet . I am using windows xp and the modem will not get the internet on the dell computer


Hi, This modem can be used via one of two ports: ethernet port (network port) or USB port If your computer has an ethernet port, it is perferable that you connect through this as you will have better performance. If you don't then you can get an ethernet card installed inside the CPU. If it's not possible to connect via this connection and you have to use the USB, then you will need drivers. This website gives you full instructions on how to use this particular modem and also gives you the USB drivers if needed. http://www.triadtwcable.com/template_media/cablemodems/rca245.htm Good luck!
