Sorry I thought you said the plug but you meant the receptacle/socket
Umph -- can you break off the broken plastic bits and get a soldering irion
onto the connectors? If so you could solder some wires in place and make
connections. that way - it should not be too difficult to do -- better than
throwing the mobo away!!
I have even wired directly to the mobo before now (broken network
connector!!!) That machine is now 4 years old and still working with a utp
cable directly wired to the mobo!!!
