I am trying to network my netbook with Ethernet. The box claims to have a 10/100Mb ethernet port, there is a socket on the back of the netbook that looks like an ethernet port, but when I plug a cat5 cable in, it drops out. I have tried several different cables, and to be honest it looks as though the connectors on the cable and in the socket wouldn't line up even if it would stay in place.

Am I using the wrong connection? Is this a known issue? Any ideas? Please!

I am afraid it's just the Chinese quality. Must likely the socket is broken :-( Try to hold the plug in place and see if the machine connects to the network...
