At my work we replaced alot of our switches with new ones. The machines connected to these switches used to have a green and orange status light. No they are both orange. The systems are working fine and the speed has gotten better if anything. Can anyone explain to me why I have two sets of orange lights now instead of one green and one orange? With it being just as fast or faster and still being connected properly I don't understand why the light changed colour....

The status lights on the Nics change colour dependant on speed as well as connectivity.

NeilSr has said it all.

Check the speed of your connection by right clicking the lan icon in Network connections and see what speed it is.

Might help to know for the future...

Thats what I thought but speed is the same and connectivity is normal.

I have figured out the problem. It IS a speed change like I first assumed. The computer I was using as a test was reporting it incorrectly for some odd reason. A reboot fixed the problem. Thank you for your help guys!!! I appreciate it!!!
