WD Live Media Hub, Ethernet port fried

A year or so ago my 1TB WD TV live media hub got hit by lightning, it fried the router, DSL modem, and the ethernet port in the back of the hub, my question is what can I do to resolve the problem? Can you use a dongle with this device, if so does anyone know where and what kind. If not can you buy the ethernet ports online somewhere to replace this? The device works fine as far as putting movies on it and watching them, but I would like to be able to share the contents over my home network.

Thank in advance for the help !

it’s unlikely the lighting strike just took out the port and nothing else on the pcb connected to it (it’s most probably fried the chip)

That said, here’s some other people in the same boat as you
