    Exclamation Ethernet port problem
    My ethernet port on my MB is fickle. The cord needs to be in there just right for my modem's internet line to be on. Sometimes if I move the MB even a little, the ethernet cable will shift, thus disconnecting me from the internet. When I jiggle the cord, it eventually reconnects. It's doable, but its an annoying problem that I think needs to be solved. Does anyone know what I can do? What sort of problem do I have?

    Alright,
    Have you tried more than one cable? If you have, get you a little flashlight and look inside to see if either of the little connectors has been been or shifted?

    There's ONE cable that I have that seems to work okay. But it's still a problem for me because I travel a lot with my MB and can't use that cable everywhere I go. I don't think any of the prongs are broken. Any other suggestions?

    Have you tried reversing the ends of the cables?
