|"Can I replace an ethernet integrated 10/100 gtech component on a ET1331G-05w e-machines motherboard?"|
I doubt it. You will have to disable it in the BIOS & then add a PCI network card. BTW, the ethernet is integrated into the nForce430 chipset, so you would need the nVidia chipset drivers however the last available are for Win7.
"I updated to Windows 10 OS, will this interfere with anything?"
According to nVidia, there are no Win10 drivers available. I'm guessing that's why the integrated ethernet won't work. I suggest you go back to Win7. Save Win10 for a computer with newer hardware.
