It was okay when I bought it, and could use the ethernet connection. But one day it just stopped working and I cannot find the reason why. The Wifi still works but I would really want to connect with ethernet beacause it is so much faster. It would be nice if someone knows how to fix this problem

Check the eithernet port CAT cable connection. If its anything link might Lenovo went to a cheaper RJ45 onboard connector and has a curved plastic door over the front I have to pry down to get my cable in. I found that a CAT6 connector was intermittent depending on the angle. A little down pressure or lying an item on the cable would make it connect. I switch to a CAT 5e cable and its connector does not have the problem so I use 2ft cable to a coupler back to the CAT 6 cable now. The inner port wires don't make a really good contact in the newer RJ45 cable ends. Don't know why but I doubt the ones on the are IEEE certified connect but cheap knockoff designs.
