LAN/VGA combo cable problem with ACER aspire V5

I have a problem which surfaced lately, i am unable to see image via secondary screen and unable connect internet through the LAN cable. ACER aspire V5 uses a LAN/VGA combo cable.

i am unsure either the cable is not responding or the network card has become faulty!

i need help or advice from someone who has exposure with ACER laptops please

I think this is going back to Acer.

I didn't find that cable on that model so I would be guessing you found this cable and want it to work on that model.

Or the model I looked at was the wrong model or I missed the adapter.

-> Another thing. If the OS is not as supplied by Acer, then this may not work.
