Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is***** will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
What is causing the Start switch to not start the computer / motherboard, is to be found out:

Can you test the Start switch with a volt-ohm-meter, to make sure it is still a functioning switch? (To be replaced if it isn't actually 'closing' as read by the ohm meter across the terminals of its plug, unplugged from the motherboard for this test.)

Then, as to Ethernet: if you have a free slot, using a plug-in Ethernet board. (Of a type depending upon what slot you have free.)

Or if no slot is free, etc., you can use a USB Ethernet adapter, like these:

of which those (preceding) two are for a USB 3. port - usually with a blue center - and Gigabit Ethernet, and cost about $14 or about $20, and these two are for USB 2 (black center to the port on the computer):
