That could be a broken ethernet port. I've had that problem on countless Dell computers. Buy a cheap as chips ethernet card, that'll sort it out.

i have noticed that all the ethernet cards come with a plug for a network cable will this item still work using a wireless usb connection ?

...okay, while that made little sense to me, I'll continue to try to help.

Ethernet cards will NOT stop wireless from working, or the reverse either.

If you have a USB Wireless Adapter, and a wireless network, you can use that instead of the ethernet port. If you want to use an ethernet cable, and the port isn't working, a cheap ethernet card will allow you to continue using the cable connection.

Well, if it's working now, that's a good sign.
