I need some understanding when it comes networking.
when I plug a cat 5 cable into my computer, a light illuminates from the female jack.
exactly what does that signify.
to that end... my patch cable goes to my wall jack, which is fed from a switch , which is fed from another switch, which is fed ( for internet ) by my router, which is fed by my cable modem. which one of those devices or connections are causing my computer's sock to illuminate?
