I can't say for sure here: Most laptops today have intergraded Ethernet port within the main logic boards Platform Controller Hub logic.

You may find the cost of repairing this is more expensive than getting an external USB3 Ethernet adapter like this one: StarTech.com USB 3.0 to Gigabit Ethernet NIC Network Adapter (10/100/1000).

I'd still look in the socket where the cable goes for debris, followed by changing the cable. Dan is correct the controller is on the logic/main board.
