Take a digital photo of your slot and show it at computer store. They'll select you the card. Guess you shouldnt have problem accounting value of the one you bought for the other.

Presario sata setting


I take it you mean your ethernet (network) card has stopped working? This is a common fault, especially with ports that are built into the motherboard. I suggest you buy and fit a PCI plug in network card--- not expensive and hook your ethernet cable to that.
Modern Windows operating systems should have no problem detecting the new card and installing a driver automatically.
Be aware that if you do this you may have to contact Microsoft to re-activate your Windows, as the MAC address you are using will have changed.

Emachine doesn't recognize the ethernet cord when plugged in


Sounds like the integrated ethernet port has gone bad. You can install a new ethernet card in one of the PCI expantion slots. Then plug the ethernet into the new card, this should take care of the problem. You can not repair a bad integrated ethernet port.

Emachine t3626 internet port can it be replaced


Absolutely!

The Ethernet port on your eMachines is part of the motherboard.
It is attached directly to the motherboard.

The eMachines T3626 Desktop PC, is supposed to use an
ECS MCP61-P (AM2) motherboard. (Cannot verify)
(Elitegroup Computer Systems. (AM2) refers to the processor socket )

http://www.ebay.com/itm/MotherBoard-eMachines-T3626-T5062-T5234-W3622-/320528791641

(Also scroll down for a larger photo of the motherboard )

The Ethernet port is in the group signified by the letter A, on the left.
The group signified by the letter A, is in the I/O area.

Input/Output area. This is where Input, and Output devices are attached, TO the motherboard. (Using the motherboard's chipset)

Now look down the motherboard, to the two long white slots.
These are PCI slots. Signified by the letter I ( i )
If one of these slots is not being used, plug in an Ethernet Card, that is PCI.

If both of these PCI slots are being used, use the small white slot above them, signified by the letter H.

This is a PCI-Express x1 slot. If it is available, use it.
Use an Ethernet Card designed to fit, in a PCI-Express x1 slot.

Example;

PCI Ethernet Adapter Card,

PCI-Express x1 Ethernet Adapter Card,

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833106033

[ Note*
The PCI-Express x16 slot that you have, (Orange in color, above the white PCI-Express x1 slot), is for a graphics card.

It is ONLY for a graphics card.
The PCI-Express x1 slot is NOT used for a graphics card ]

For additional questions please post in a Comment.
(If you would like the proper procedure for installing a Ethernet Adapter Card, in your eMachines T3626, also state in a Comment)

Ethernet port not functioning after lifghtening strike


Ethernet port not working after a lightning strike? Then I suggest obtaining an inexpensive Ethernet adapter card, and installing it.

One example of an Ethernet adapter card, (Ethernet Card, Networking Card - Same/same),

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=1275962&CatId=200

The above Ethernet adapter card is a PCI style of adapter card. It plugs into any available PCI expansion slot on the Pavilion a620n's motherboard.

This is an illustration and photo of the Pavilion a620n motherboard from HP Support,

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00069442&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&site=null&lang=en&key=null&product=424215

Scrolling to the middle of the page shows first the illustration, then the photo.
In the motherboard photo the three white long expansion slots on the bottom of the motherboard, are the PCI slots.

On this page is information on how to open the computer case, and replace, or install an Ethernet Card,

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/manualCategory?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=424215&

This is a PDF file. You may have to allow up to 30 seconds to see the first page, and additional time for the file to fully download.

[Removing and Installing an Add-In Card is information on how to remove, and install an Ethernet Card. An Ethernet adapter card is an Add-In Card]

Adding a PCI ethernet card?


One port on the router is an "Ethernet" port -- look closely to see the 8 wires in the socket.

You'll need a similar 8-wire connector on your computer,
and an "Ethernet-cable" that has 8 strands of wire.

Adding-in the PCI Ethernet card will add an 8-wire connector,
so that the Ethernet-cable can be connected.

Be sure to buy a 'PCI' Ethernet adapter, not 'PCI-E', and not 'ISA'.
It may come with a CD-ROM containing software to be installed.

Don't pay more than $20. Or, find a "computer-geek" -- he/she probably will have one or more "spare" PCI Ethernet cards to give to you.

Questions about replacing ethernet card on my Dell desktop


Any ethernet card will work fine. Just be sure it's the fit's the correct slot. You probably have a "white" slot which is a pci slot. If it's a longer "black" slot then it's isa. More than likely it came from a pci slot. Before you buy one, confirm the type of slot. In additon, before installing it go to control panel and system settings, hardware, device manager and remove the old one by right clicking it and select delete or remove. Shut down the computer follow instructions for new card.
Probably will have to install the drivers first then shut down and install the new card. Good Luck.

Modem bad on Dell Dimension 2400, Can it be replaced?


Ethernet port or dial up modem?

If it's the built in ethernet port, all you need to do is purchase a PCI ethernet card, disable the one that's built in in the device manager and you're good to go.

Thanks and please take a moment to give this solution a rating of fixya.

No ethernet port on older Dell desktop


Yes, all you need is a PCI ethernet card. You can pick them up rather cheap. Here is one. You basically plug it into an available PCI port on the inside of your computer. If XP doesn't automatically install it, just insert the included CD with the drivers on it and XP will do the rest. And remember to please give this answer a good rating of fixya. Thanks.
