Ethernet card blinking lights

  1. My PC has a built-in ethernet card. The orange lite blinks, green lite is steady.

    QUESTION: Does this indicate that the card is properly functioning?

    The normal is:

    green=100 mb
    amber=10 mb

    Also normally the Green light will flash with activity.

    Tho not all mfg go by this. Not sure why you have both a green and amber unless it is indicating activity.

    What is the brand of NIC?

    But I would not worry unless you have issues.
