[quote="WetTechHead"]I have the same issue now. I have never used the ethernet connection before, but wanted to give the unit to my mother (I don't trust her with WIFI). The wifi is connecting, but I am getting "System error accessing the ethernet port!" when I remove the WIFI card, plug in the ethernet cable, and restart the unit. Any luck with your issue?[/quote]
Looks like the ethernet port is shorted. Even though the cable is in, only the top two lights are on. While removing the cable, I saw the bottom light briefly come on. Pushing the cable towards the WIFI slot made the light stay on the the unit connected. This, of course, is not a workable solution, I cannot press on the cable all of the time.
Anyone have this issue? Can it be repaired?
