Go into device manager and make sure the drivers for the ethernet controller are there. If they are, uninstall them, then do a hardware search. It will find the port and install the drivers automatically. If the drivers are installed and everything shows correctly, then it may be the port itself.

One of my usb port is not working samsung laptop


Just use the others. You can get a 4/5 port extension that fits into any one USB (Working Port) for a few dollars. Each port allows additional USB devices to be added onto the original single port. Assuming you have TWO active ports, that translates to 8 USB ports min. Tiger Direct has them cheap.

How can i update dell dock?


A docking station is an extension or addition of ports for a laptop computer. Once the portable computer is docked, you can access the docking station's ports, such as PS/2 or USB 2.0 ports, through your computer. Some docking stations have monitors that you can connect your computer to, placing your video on an external screen so you can turn off your computer's monitor and conserve some of your computer's energy. All Dell docking stations will have the same general troubleshooting steps.

Plug your laptop's power adapter into the docking station and dock your laptop onto/into the docking station. If there is no power going to your laptop from the docking station but it works when the power adapter is plugged into the wall, the docking station is bad and needs to be replaced. Plug your power adapter into the docking station and dock your laptop onto/into the docking station. If power goes on but your computer doesn't recognizes accessories such as a USB mouse--plugged into the docking station, try a different port on the station. If it works in a different port, the previous USB port is burned out. Plug your power adapter into the docking station and dock your laptop onto/into the docking station. If power is going through the docking station but no accessories are being recognized, you might have a corrupted docking profile. Undock the computer and dock it again once it has fully started up to reset the docking profile. Plug your power adapter into the docking station and dock your laptop onto/into the docking station. If you have an external monitor and it is not working, completely close the lid on the laptop so the image will move to the external monitor. Plug your power adapter into the docking station and dock your laptop onto/into the docking station. If power is going through the docking station but no accessories are being recognized and resetting the docking profile fails, update all drivers through Dell's support website and then re-dock the computer. Some of the software that runs the hardware may have become corrupted. Hope this helps

Uninstall Avast and see if that solves the internet connection problem. If it does, Google and download 'Microsoft Security Essentials'. It is working just as good as Avast for all the machines I send out of my shop and it is free as well.
If it does not solve it, depending on what Windows you are using, you should try a system restore to a day before your internet started acting up.
Let me know and feel free to rate if it solves it. If not, I will continue to try and help.

This computer has both ethernet & WiFi connection capability which should allow internet capability with the proper router.
