The lan card on your computer is integraded to the motherboard,so buying a new one would be faster and much cheaper than taking it to a computer or electronics repair shop.There is also a possibility that there is a sofware error and you need to reinstal the lan drivers,or just check your settings.

Your ethernet port is probably integrated into the motherboard of your computer. Have you tried reinstalling the driver for the ethernet?
If the port is truly bad, my suggestion would be to purchase an ethernet card or NIC (Network Interface Card) and have it installed. You can get them for $15 to $25 at any big box computer store.

SOURCE: Ethernet port is bad
Do you mean is the port itself it is not removable. The things you should do is to buy a LAN card device and install that device in your computer including the driver. Now you can connect to internet and access.

Sure you can't see the Ethernet card because that is integrated motherboard so that means all the controller cards(graphic, audio, network) are in same place in chip set.
First try to uninstall network drivers and to install again if that will not work you can install PCI network card (they are very cheap).
