Why Cisco VOIP's link lights solid amber when connected, compared to computers blinking green?
Posted on 2008-06-18
We have several Cisco VOIP's ranging from 7940's-7971's. When we connect them to our switches, which range from Cisco 2950-3750, the phone's link lights solid amber and the computers blink green. Is there any reason as to why the VOIP phones are able to work but the ports show up as amber. Also checked out the port configuration, they are all running Fast Ethernet, 100mbps, etc. We have a flat network here where every switch is daisy chained to each other. I was wondering if they show up amber because of how slow the network is going, QOS, or something else. Has anyone else seen this issue? Thanks.
