All lights for that port keeps blinking

All lights for that port keeps blinking

All lights for that port keeps blinking


I have a PC which has a onboard LAN Port. So i need to connect my PC to the router which place at about 15 metres away. When i hook them up, at the router side, all lights for that port keep blinking (link light, 10/100Mbps, FDX/COL). So i disconnect and replace the PC with my notebook, and the symptom went off. Everything is working fine. So i suspect, maybe the LAN Port in my PC has problem. So i bought a NIC and pluck it in, the symptom appears again.

Can anyone advise me what can i do in order to connect my PC to the router? Any setting that i miss out?

Hello Irene,

       Did you scan your computer for virus/spyware ?
