    As above. The ethernet port in my late 2009 27" iMac has failed.

    Looking for (known working options) USB / Ethernet options until funds permit a new machine.

    I have a generic usb / ethernet dongle that works, or seems to work one way, but as soon as it is taxed a little too much it craps out. WiFi is just too slow.

    Any firewire / ethernet gubbins out there?

    Yup, checked these. No pins crushed, all looks normal.

    I used a D-Link on my late 2009 iMac until I had time to bring it in for service and had no issues. Another choice would be the Apple USB to Ethernet Adapter.
