Hi, I'm kind of confused by your request. Does the computer turn on? If it does, then the Ethernet port should be working on your computer. The only option to remove the Ethernet port from your computer is through soldering, and that generally isn't recommended.

Hope this helps

    You say you bought a new card, did you buy a new ethernet card?

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,

What ethernet card to install Dell Optiplex GX 240? one attached to mo works intermittently - loose.


You can use any brand of Ethernet card in this computer as long as it will fit in the case. If your GX240 is packaged in the small form factor case, you'll need a low-profile card. (Low-profile cards have a shorter mounting bracket than regular-size cards which won't fit this case.) For the small desktop and mini-tower cases you can use any card.

If you want to avoid having to open the case and fit a new card, consider a USB Ethernet adapter. All you need to do is plug it in to an available USB port and you're done. No opening the case and worrying about installing a card. These adapters are available at some retailers and through online vendors.

Whichever way you go, just be sure to go into the computer's BIOS settings and disable the integrated network connection.

Hope this helps. Thanks for using Fixya!

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.

Replacing an ethernet port on my hp pavillion


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.

Can I get the internet on compaq armada 1700 laptop?


That phone line will only be for actual phone lines.. as it will be a modem.

If the lappy has an ethernet port (slightly larger than a phone port, but looks the same) you could use that with an ethernet cable to a DSL modem. (the modem has the phone wire plugged into it)

Most laptops have an ethernet port, but yours might be a bit too old perhaps? If that's the case, you can buy either a USB to ethernet adapter (but you might not have that either) or a PCMCIA ethernet card. The latter will definitely work for you, and can be bought second hand VERY cheaply... if not for nothing.

I really hope it has something a bit newer than '95 though... otherwise just getting the internet to work could be a problem. Good luck!

Rg54g3 router problem


Lightning seems to have zapped the Ethernet port on the Modem side, the WAN port, this is quite common with telephone and cable line surges. 
Consider your router smoked.

Tv wont come on


Hi, unplug your system from the wall then open the case and use a torch to see inside of the machine. locate your video card and examine the capacitors, these are the round things with silver tops on them. If any of them have a raised or bulged top or have leaked out the bottom then the lightning has over heated them. the only solution is to then replace the card. Goodluck. msityman
