I am a Dell Inspiron N5010 user, and I use wired internet.

Recently, when I tried to remove the ethernet cable from my LAN port, it was not coming out even though I pressed the clip and pulled it. So I tried to remove it carefully, and it came out but the pins of LAN port went inside.

I asked Dell for a replacement as it was under warranty, but they would not.

So how can I fix my LAN port?

You can try to bend the pins back in, but I doubt you will have much luck with that.

Buy a USB to ethernet adapter and you should be good to go.
