Environment

Endura WS5070 workstation

Cause

The network link is running below 1 gbps. A blinking amber light indicates a speed of 100 mbps and a red light indicates a speed of 10 mbps. If it is operating normally at 1 gbps, it will blink green.

Resolution

  1. Check the cabling. Verify that the cable is either category 5e or category 6.
  2. Check the port settings on the switch. Verify it is set to autonegotiate the speed. If it is already set to autonegotiate, then hard code the port to 1 gbps.
