    Two posts, two problems in one day... thanks for putting up with me :)

    Ever since I got my iMac back from the folks at the apple store (replaced logic board due to random shut downs), I have had a dead ethernet port.

    Any way to remedy this? I didn't bother getting it fixed under warranty (laziness) cause i was content with wireless at the time.

    The port is definitely dead, I've tested working cat5 cables from a pc to my mac, and alas, no wired internet.

    Umm... you could replace it? Go Wireless? USB?

    Is it that simple?! For some reason i was thinking the ethernet port was fused permanently to the logic board or something... Is it an easy replace? cause I'd do it in a heartbeat.
