    No its not possible as your ethernet port is broken. But you can get a pci ethernet card or a usb wireless one for your motherboard

    Probably with some clever programming. Not sure you'll have much luck finding anything though.

    Ethernet cards are £10 max, just order one & use the laptop until it arrives.

    Who says you need a Ethernet port :p

    Netgear has a better reputation and support. Also, the cheap one isnt in stock
