Fried Ethernet Port
Posted 15 July 2007 - 02:11 AM
Is it possible to get the internet through a USB to Ethernet type of thing? Is there anything that does that? Like a USB hub with a bunch of Ethernet ports?
ANY advice on how i might go about ailing this problem is greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

Which NIC IC is in your 360, the ICS (rectangle) one or the BCM (tiny square) one? It's right there behind the ethernet plug there on the top of the board. There's really no protection between the jack and it, other than the filters in the jack itself, so it could be that the IC is shot, the jack, or even that part of the Southbridge that deals with it.
Are you sure you're connecting it up to a net source that works and with a good cable? Have to eliminate the "is there gas in it" kinda problems first, since they often get overlooked.

I'd personally wire up the status LEDs for the LAN and see what they show, if anything, then try replacing the NIC IC, but those are a good bit beyond what ya may be capable of. Tearing the 360 apart and soldering is involved, and in the case of the NIC IC, depending on which one it is, really hard soldering is involved.
