      Question Lights on Router box

      When I now turn off my computer, the green "1" port light, turns from being green into amber. It does turn back to green, once the computer is turned back on.

      I have also unchecked all tick boxes under the Wireless settings, as I am not currently going wireless. I don't know if this would make any difference?

      This wasn't happening days ago, and only seems to be after I have installed some Microsoft updates, plus a software update to my Ethernet NIC (which I don't think I can un-install).

      Is the router ok, with the light being on amber, whilst the computer is not is use?

      This is the software update:

      Realtek - Networking - Realtek RTL8169/8110 Family PCI Gigabit Ethernet NIC (NDIS 6.0).

      Am totally confused why this should happen??

      Thanks

      This has been discussed recently here
      Router Problem: Green power light & amber tick light flashing alternately
      Its probably to do with your NIC software update, if its green when your pc is on then its probably not worth worrying about.
      cheers
