Try to load the latest driver, you can get that from HP under your computer. If that does not fix it then go buy a cheap USB Ethernet adaptor from Amazon or BestBuy, plug it in to a spare USB port and follow the directions for the adaptor with your Ethernet cable plugged into the new adaptor.
That is it, you have bypassed the bad Ethernet power and can forget about it (they can't be fixed), you should be good to go.
If you don't want to try the driver, then just get a new adaptor and that will bypass the internal adaptor.
1.Unplug all phone, fax and satellite TV cables from the wall phone jacks.

4.Plug the gray phone cable into the other jack on the filter labeled "DSL."
5.Add the single DSL filters on all remaining phone jacks in the same manner, plugging the device phone cables into the filter. The single filters only have one jack.
6.Plug the power adapter into the power port on the back of the 2710HG-B router and then plug the other end into a power outlet. This will cause the power light on the front of the router to turn green.
7.Plug the free end of the gray phone cable into the port on the back of the router labeled "Phone Line."
8.Plug one end of the yellow Ethernet cable into one of the four ports on the back of the router labeled "Ethernet."

You will also be prompted to enter a WEP encryption key, also found on the bottom side of the router. The WEP key is the 10 digit number that appears in brackets under the first bar code.
If you ethernet port is broken or just not working and you are having no luck changing the settings then an easy fix is to get an adapter card. Some even have a couple USB ports on them also besides the Lan port so it is actually an upgrade.
It should be located on the top right hand side, on the SIDE of the computer. It looks just like a phone jack hook up. Hope this helps. Also, if you don't have one or can't find it you can always plug in an adapter to the telephone line and then you can plug the ethernet cord into that.
It could be. Check your Device Manager and make sure the device isn't disabled. Also each adapter has its own TCP/IP settings so make sure yours on your ethernet adapter are set the same as your USB adapter that is working. If it does turn out to be bad you can always add a new ethernet card for cheap.
You say "your Ethernet Port" (= LAN port) If unavailable try using any USB to rj45 adapter and you can use any USP port. Check this device:Linksys - USB200M - Compact USB 2.0 10/100 Network Adapter (20 $?) or similar
They sell USB to Ethernet adapters that you can use. If you want to replace the adapter yourself you will have to strip the laptop down to the mother board, then proceed to de-solder then solder the new one back onto the board. You can but the replacement piece from either http://sparepartswarehouse.com if they have your make and model, or you can get it from your laptop's distributer.
