    Hi guys, been a while since I've been about, but thats another story!!

    I've come into work this morning, to find problems on a couple of switches. An old switch dead, another one with 2-3 ports failing, just to add to the confusion. Replaced the switch with a 24 port Linksys 1Gb, and although all the users are now happily working away, im a little concerned. The "Data" lights are active and flickering as expected, but the orange "Link" lights are not lit for most of the ports. Although 3-4 of them are.

    Huh? Surely the "Link" lights should be on, for example mine isnt, but im working on the network happily with no probs. Can anyone shed any light?


    Cheers

    Does the orange LED represent the speed of the port? Maybe on = 100 mbps off = 10 mbps.

    What does the manual say??

    Not sure about Linksys switches, but Procurve switches have a button on them that changes the display to either link - speed - F/H duplex - Activity.

    Could be something like that?????

    If only I had half a brain, I might use it! 8)

    It was if 100 = link light off, if 1gb = link light on.

    Thanks guys :D
