I've got an expensive Cat 6 cable that was damaged due to someone tripping on it when it was plugged in.

The force damaged the plug head, and now the cable won't stay secure in the ethernet port.

Is it easy to repair this, and where should I take it to get it repaird cheaply and quickly?

Cut it off and put a new end on it.

Find a nice network admin to do it for you. Otherwise stores like CompUSA sell ends and crimping tools.
