Orange LED on network card. What does it mean?
Posted on 2002-05-22
Network card in one machine.....there is an intermittent problem with network access. I note from the back of the machine that the LED on the NIC is orange...I would expect green.
Strange thing is that if I move the machine to another room and plug in to another point, with a fresh working cable also, the LED IS green. I moved another working machine onto the "problem" socket and got a green light on that one too.
So from that I can deduce......what???
I think the key here is what does that orange LED actually indicate....am I chasing a red herring?
