Sorry to hear that you are having problems ... and I would like to help you.
(1) The ethernet socket has internal plastic inserts. These are usually broken. There may be other damages, I can't tell from a distance. The connector must be replaced by desoldering and soldering in a new connector. This requires special knowledge. The notebook must be dissambled to get access to motherboard. This requires a lot of effort.
(2) There is also a cheap alternative: USB-to-Ethernet adapter.
(3) Please let me know how you decide
