iMac 2009 internet & network problems

  Powderfinger 16:59 31 Jan 2019

Hi - my iMac (2009) has started to intermittently refuse to allow access to the internet (either by ethernet or wifi) & I think the built-in network facility (on the motherboard) must be failing. Is there any way that an external network card (via USB perhaps?) can be used instead, as I understand there is no obvious fix to the built-in one? The iMac is otherwise still a great machine & I don't really want to junk it just yet...

thanks for any help or suggestions
