How to replace ethernet port in gateway gt5404


Answers :

Can i fix my rj-45(network)jack myself
If your motherboard's ethernet (RJ-45) port is the only problem, you have two options. For a workaround, use a spare PCI or PCI-Express slot and add a network card. Assuming their is nothing wrong further down the line than the port itself, that should get you back on the web / home network.

If however, you do not have a (spare) slot to add a network card, the only alternative is repair. Most manufacturers are good about helping customers with repairs, though of course, at a cost. Even worse with RMAs is the shipping cost, which is often completely billed to you, both ways. For this reason, motherboards are usually cheaper to replace than repair.

Desoldering the RJ-45/USB module from your motherboard may seem like a simple task, but the average joe with a soldering kit simply doesn't have the ability to do this sort of repair without further causing further damage to the board. Leave the repairs to the professionals. If you are trained to do this sort of work, you shouldn't need any advice about how its done.
