HP Elite 8000 USDT Network cable connector keeps blinking

HP Recommended

My Elite 8000 Ultra Small computer has a small problem.

The network cable connector keeps blinking, even when the computer is shutdown.

Any remedy??

Certainly.

 

Just unplug the CAT5 cable.

 

That can be done whether the PC is powered on or off.

 

The blinking led will immediately stop and go dark.

Why is that a problem?   CAT5 Connectors are not capable of blinking?

 

The device it is connected to is a NIC and it has a  power led and a connection type led.

 

There is no network traffic and the current draw is minuscule, considering the NIC is not powered on.

It is a very small problem indeed.

It draws my attention at night, when the room is dark.

I was just wondering if the permanent blinking could be stopped one way or another.

If I unplug the cable modem I will no longer have access to the internet to complete my work.

@DGroves

I do not disagree with that.  😉 

 

The

 NIC adapters are supposed to blink
