hello, after a thunderstorm my laptop (Toshiba Satellite L25) can't connect to internet via direct plug in but works fine via wireless connection. Can it be fixed? Thanks!

I've had to replace the Ethernet adapter in a half dozen machines over the years due to lightening damage that only affected the Ethernet adapter. Since you can't really do that on a laptop, you would have to get a USB to Ethernet adapter to replace the onboard adapter.
