    The Ethernet port on my 600 Mhz, dual usb iBook has a loose connection. Therefore, I cannot connect to my cable modem through that port. Can anyone give me an estimate as to how much it should cost me if I have to replace that port?

    Thanks.

    don't know but it will probably cost almost as much as the computer is worth
    you could get an airport card and a wireless router for around 200 and that would get you online

    i agree

    huncamunca is right. It would probably be better to go wireless. It would fix your problem and let you walk around your home

    Edit: a suggestion for a wireless router.
    Netgear, cheap and works great with my 600Mhz dual USB ibook. its about $30-$50 depending on sales you find. :)
