So I have a Cisco 2610 Router that receives the main pipe of our ISP.

From that router I have it plugged to a Cisco 2950.

Now every once and a while or I should say it happens a lot, the port will be blinking green and steady just normal and then it starts to blink Amber, then goes back to blinking normal green.

I have not really experienced any type of network delay or anything but it just seems wierd it does that.

Is there a command I can run to see what is happening on there or what I should be looking for. I am a pretty newbie on the cisco stuff.
