ibook ethernet cable comes loose

i recently got this blueberry ibook off of ebay. every cable i've tried
(which work fine w/ every other nic i have) disconnects if it's not pushed
completely in. if it's pull on just a little bit, it disconnects, even
though the bend tab is still holding the connector in. in other words,
there's too much play inside the ibook's jack. has anyone else had this
problem? if so, were you able to fix it?

it's very annoying when i'm using it in my lap and it disconnects every time
i move. also the sun gem driver complains everytime it does and keeps
spitting out warnings, filling syslog, until it's reconnected (i may not
notice for a while, it i'm in x).
