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

Re: Network Port Replacement

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.

Amber lights on a Cisco switch.

It sounds like you have loops in your topology. Loops will cause the LAN to crawl.

Amber, on a Cisco switch port means that a port has been blocked either as a security violation (if mac-address security is being used) or by spanning-tree protocol which shuts down ports involved in a network loop.

Check all your wiring carefully...especially the fiber-to-ethernet converters. If anybody has a hub or switch under their desk make sure they do not have two ports from that device patched into two ports in your cisco switch.

From Cisco catalyst 3500 user guide:

Solid amber

Port is not forwarding. Port was disabled by management or an address violation or blocked by Spanning-Tree Protocol (STP).

Note After a port is reconfigured, the port status LED can remain amber for up to 30 seconds as STP checks the switch for possible loops.

Dynex 7' network cable stuck in dell laptop port

One of two things has happened. Hopefully this has happened: The thumb tab is not pulling the lock down far enough to release the plug. Take a very tiny straight slot screw driver (jewellers) or a very long pointed pocket knife, run it down the thumb tab on the outside until you have passed the locking lip. Then move it to one side. This will cause the lock to be pressed close enough to the plug that it will clear the locking lip and release the plug. Think of it as a shoe horn.

If this procedure is unsuccessful, it maybe the other problem. The plug slides in on 8 loose wires. They are only attached at the leading edge and as the plug is inserted it presses down these wires. The wires are loose at the other end and rarely develope an upward curl. This curl hooks on the plug and as you attempt to pull out it gets tighter and tighter. You should get a very thin but tough piece of packaging plastic and cut it just less than the width of the plug. Push it up between the contact side of the plug and the wires of the receptical, far enough to pass the end of the plug. Then pull the plug free. Always remember to press the thumb release as hard as possible to release the thumb lock.

Router with RJ45 cable port available

Nowadays most routers come with RJ45 connectors. That is a connector for network cable.
