Dead Ethernet Port

Two days ago I turned on my radio and it never showed up in SSDR. I did a little troubleshooting and found I had no lights on the ethernet port. I removed power, did a reset and the ethernet port on the radio remained dark. I tried different known working cables and another switch and it still was dead. I opened a trouble ticket and they immediately sent me an RMA. I sent the radio out yesterday but I'm a little worried by this line in the RMA.

Due to a high service workload our estimated lead time for in-warranty repairs is approximately 4 business weeks. Out of warranty products may take longer to repair.

Naturally mine is out of warranty. Hope it's back for CQWW...

Does anyone know if the Ethernet on the radio is a separate module or is it integrated into one of the main boards? If separate I might have tried changing it myself.

The ethernet connector is on the main TRX board (transceiver board).  Essentially the main board in the radio.
