Introduction

If the Ethernet port is broken and you would rather not use Wi-Fi, this guide will show you how to replace the Ethernet PCB board.

The Ethernet port has its own dedicated PCB board, meaning it can be replaced without needing to replace working components.

In order to access the Ethernet PCB board, you need to remove the bottom casing. The bottom casing is held in by clips. Use a spudger to pry it off, but be mindful of the delicate ribbon cable inside connecting the bottom casing to the motherboard.

A Phillips #0 screwdriver can be used for all 7 screws.
