which connects to RJ45 are 8pins. You maybe looking for an RJ11 which is 6pins. I wonder if people use that now-a-day. I haven't check but RJ11 a telephone jack?
Hi guys. Kind of a weird situation and I need your help. Please read on.
I usually buy broken laptops, gaming consoles, desktops, LED monitors etc refurb them and then resell them.
Recently, I came across a Sony VAIO which has been previously tampered with by other people and has been upgraded from it's basic specs.
The problem is, this laptop has an ethernet port which does not fit the motherboard.
The ethernet rj 45 jack has a m970 cable with a 8 pin connector. The motherboard, which is a M961
MP has an ethernet port with only 6 pin outlet.
When I disassembled the laptop, the ethernet port connector wasn't even connected to the board, which is obvious because it didnt fit.
I'm not sure whether whoever upgraded it changed the usb port or the motherboard itself. Probably the motherboard was changed because it was an upgrade from i3 to i5.
In any case, could anyone tell me what part I need to fix this problem?
A new ethernet port for this 961 motherboard? Does anyone know the part name or number?
