Ask Max: How can I fix my iMac's Ethernet port?

Asked on 12/23/2008:

My 6-year-old dome iMac G4 800 MHz 512 MB suffered lightning damage. They tell me the Ethernet port is dead so the logic board has to be replaced and Apple no longer makes the needed part.

Is there any other fix for this problem?


The cheapest fix is to get a USB Ethernet adapter and use that for your network connection.

This Belkin Gigabit network adapter is for people with USB 2.0 and 10/100 USB 1.1 computers.

Drivers for OS 10.2 and up are found at the Belkin gigabit USB product support page.
