Your issue is not the Ethernet connection. More likely they are talking about the version of your OS.

Have you been applying the OS updates when they are released?

Do you have any anti-virus application running and you've been keeping it up-to date?

I would start there.

Depending on what apps you are using you may need to update them as well.

I'd love to see a copy of this statement from your ISP, because when I sniff it smells like something you step in. Your machine will take the latest Mac OS and it's free from Apple. Go here to find out about it:
