Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 9100 Notebook ?

My ethernet port is not working. I have not used

\015 My ethernet port is not working. I have not used it since I initially set up my wireless router, but changed ISPs and needed to re-do everything. My Dell Inspiron is not reading anthing connected to the ethernet port. Do I need to replace the ethernet card, and is there a trick to opening the case so I can get to the card? I tried removing all of the case screws but it still seems that something is holding it together. I didn't want to force it and break something. Thanks.\015
