Hi:

 

Unfortunately, you can't because the ethernet chip is an integral part of the motherboard.

 

If your notebook has a free USB 3 port, you can purchase an external USB to RJ-45 gigabit ethernet adapter.

You're very welcome.

 

Something like this is what I am referring to.

 

You need to plug it into a USB 3 port to get the full giabit ethernet connection speed.
