Is the ethernet port on this laptop separate from the motherboard. It has a usb port right next to it. The dis assembly video looks like it might be a separate part. Where would I get a replacement for this?

I imagine the port connector is soldered to the mainboard...if you're handy with a soldering iron you might be able to change it out (people DIY change out the DC in plug with success), otherwise...its off to repair. Is yours toast?

The Asus laptops I've seen up close and personal (:)) use an add-on LAN board....it appears that yours is no exception. You can get the part number for the G73 LAN board HERE (http://www.asusparts.eu/product_info.php?cPath=67674_73347_158847_158848_1 58883&products_id=39984)on the EU parts store (which always has a lot more than the Asus eStore). Hopefully, this information will help you locate it from U.S. supplier.
