Hi, We had a storm a couple of days ago, and I found that my cable modem / router, Apple Airport Extreme and the Ethernet port of my Mac Mini (connected to the router) were all damaged. Just wondering if it is possible (or economically worthwhile) to fix the Ethernet network adapter on my Mini (2011 quad-core), or whether this involves replacing the entire logic board? The workaround is to use the Thunderbolt port with an adapter, but then I lose the ability to run two monitors (without USB 2 adapters). I'm surprised just how easily damaged LAN ports are - the electrical surge passed through the cable, the modem and at least two of the connected devices. This is the second time I lost both a cable modem and an Apple Airport - is there any effective way of preventing this (other than unplugging, and I'm not always at home when it happens!). I have a power surge protector, but I doubt this prevents surges that happen through the overhead co-ax cable.
