Tab in USB Port Broke/How to Get Replacement? Dimension 3100/E310

Hello.  Recently, in one of the USB port in front of my computer, the little tab inside the port broke off.  As you know, this tab kept the USB plugs securely in place while plugged in.  I now only have one USB port usable (where my wifi USB is currently plugged in).  My question is, can I order a replacement to repair the USB ports so both ports are usable?  Any suggestions of where I can order and how much?   Thanks in advance.

No you can't. But you have other usb ports on the back. Plug the wifi adapter in the back so you can use the front one. You can also add a network adapter card inside the computer and use that for wifi.
