Solved!

m6-1045dx ethernet connection

HP Recommended

Minor question.  First time I used  ethernet on it.  Cable I used has a big tang (clip),  With enough wiggling you can get it in.  However do not like inserting cables with such force.  Bottom "door"  bulges out a bit.  Am I missing something?  Or cheap design?  Works, just do not want to be on my way to breaking something.

Hello Eeyore,

 

I see that you have a question concerning the Ethernet cable.

 

In my experience almost all Ethernet cable ends are near the same size but for some reason I have ran into some that are slightly larger and have a tougher time inserting into computer ports.

 

It may be a design issue for that brand or the clip may be tight if it is a new cord. I wouldn't worry about harming the port on the computer you are more likely to break the clip on the Ethernet cord.

 

If you are constantly taking you cord in and out of the computer you may want to consider a different brand of Ethernet cord.
