Ethernet port blown fixes?

From looking at the tear down, it looks like the Ethernet port is on the main processor board. I lost my Ethernet port in a recent lightning storm (took out an AppleTV2, Samsung TV, and my iMac Ethernet port - routers, etc... All seem ok).

I'm currently running via WiFi, but would like the extra bandwidth a direct line gives since this computer is my server for 2 AppleTV's and multiple iPads and iPhones.

Any viable options for repair or replace?

A USB Ethernet dongle would be the easiest work around.
