I have a dell laptop that have mechanical problems with the onboard, incorporated NIC.
Someone tried to unplug the network cable without pressing the RJ45(if that's the technical) clap and broke some small plastic parts, which made the cable connector stay stable(the small plastics that are also responsible for the "click" sound at cable insertion).
I have a laptop that is broken and I thought that I can take that NIC(or just the plastic part) and replace it with the broken one.
I just want to know if there is possible, or do I need to buy an USB/PCMCIA network adapter. I hope not.
