    Mac Mini mid 2011

    Used since bought using ethernet cable to NET no issues.

    27th Feb no internet from cable "Status Cable Unplugged"

    Cable checked and working with laptop.

    Mini works on wi fi only now.

    Under about this mac system report

    Ethernet Cards "This computer does not appear to have any PCI Ethernet cards installed"

    Any ideas or has anyone experienced this in last few days at all ?

    Crickey, I got burned by that too literally over the weekend. Wish I had found this post first because I reinstalled OS X completely. Not in itself a bad thing - nuke and paving is a good opportunity to backup and clean out the cruft - but I'd have rather spent my Sunday evening on something more productive
